This year’s AEC will be held August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
“Black Petticoat is honored to be a part of the 2019 AEC. A lifelong eventer and owner of Black Petticoat, [I am] thrilled to be able to be a sponsor of a sport so close to [my] heart. [I] started competing when the USEA was the USCTA, and while the format may have changed, [my] love of the sport of eventing never will. Good luck to all of the 2019 competitors!” said Lauren Dunlap, owner of Black Petticoat.
Black Petticoat is a forward-thinking fashion and equestrian clothing shop. Owner Lauren Dunlap and her mother, Rebecca Dunlap, have hand-selected each and every piece in their shop. Together they have curated a shop that includes timeless classic fashion pieces. They also offer stunning shoes and boots, unique jewelry, and equestrian clothing that can go from the streets to the stables to the show ring.
“We are thrilled to have this new partnership with Black Petticoat,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “They are experts in the equine clothing industry and their handpicked products are great for any eventer. We are very thankful for their support of the 2019 AEC.”

This month we’re going to begin a several-month series about defense and coping mechanisms. It’s common for these two terms to be used interchangeably, but they’re actually quite different. Coping mechanisms are mental strategies that resolve stressful events, while defense mechanisms are behaviors that attempt to avoid or hide from them.
While every story submitted to the USEA for the June Horse of the Month was unique and special, it was Teddy’s story that stood out. Therefore, the USEA June Horse of the Month is Talon Ted aka "Teddy", a 14.1 hand, 17-year-old Paint Pinto Gelding owned by Eran Murray and ridden by Eran’s daughter, Brooke Murray.
This article will be updated to include statements as they are released from upcoming USEA recognized events regarding actions they are taking due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
In 2000 and with the support of Joan Iversen Goswell, the Worth the Trust Scholarships were established to provide financial assistance to amateurs to pursue their education in eventing. The funds from the Worth the Trust Educational Scholarship may be used for training opportunities such as clinics, working student positions, and private or group instruction, or to learn from an official, course designer, technical delegate, judge, veterinarian, or organizer.
