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.
