Updated 2020 Competition Calendar Released with Rescheduled Events

By Leslie Mintz - USEA Staff

The USEA Competitions, Calendar, and Rules Committee, along with the USEA Areas and the USEF Eventing Sport Committee, have been working hard to assist events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with rescheduling. There were 259 USEA recognized events on the calendar for 2020 and of those 82 have been impacted by COVID-19 so far with 23 receiving rescheduled dates and five new events being added to the calendar. The calendar may continue to change as events have to follow state and local regulations, but all rescheduled dates for events who put in requests have now been decided. Please refer to the USEA Competition Calendar for the most up-to-date information.

The current USEF/USEA suspension period is set to expire on May 31, 2020 after which events can run if the suspension period is not extended, and they are able to follow all local, state, federal, and CDC guidelines as well as the USEF COVID-19 Action Plan.

*This list has been updated to reflect cancellations to events that had previously rescheduled.

Smith Wins CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S; Turner Takes CCI2*-S at Twin Rivers Fall International

The CCI4*-S had an exciting shake-up of the top placings to finish out the International divisions at the Twin Rivers Fall International. It was Tamie Smith and Passepartout, an 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding (Pasco x Preschel) owned by Tamie's daughter Kaylawna Smith-Cook, who came out on top with the fastest cross-country time of the group. Ruth Bley’s 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding Danito (Dancier x Wie Musik) took second. Erin Kellerhouse and her own Woodford Reserve rounded out the top three.

Foregut or Hindgut? That's The Question!

Knowing what sort of support your horse needs can be tough, but it can also make a big difference. There’s a lot of confusion between your horse’s foregut health and hindgut health. After all, the process of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients is all technically “digestion,” so isn’t it all the same? Not quite. The organs in the foregut and hindgut have different functions, and each area has unique health concerns.
