By Area II - Press Release

USEA Area II announces its annual fundraising auction online is open for bidding! This fundraiser is over 20 years old and now well-known as the "Black Friday" for entries to ALL your favorite events! In typical years, the auction is held as a silent auction at the Annual Area Meeting, but because of COVID-19 restrictions, no in-person meeting will be held, so we're bringing the auction to everyone online this year.

It is located at usea2.net/auction

Over 20 donated horse trial entries are available for auction, including a stall at Tryon, an all-fees included entry to Windridge, and many more from horse trials and events from New Jersey to North Carolina and lots of events in between.

A featured high-dollar donation is a $500 emergency medical assistance/CPR class for 10 riders - taught at your farm - by Fair Hill's favorite Safety Coordinator, Tom Coulter, specifically designed for equestrians. A great idea for any barn!

Much more is included, almost 100 donated items makes this one of the most comprehensive and active eventing-related auctions in the country.

  • New bestselling book, "Crossing The Line" by Kareem Rosser - HALF of the winning bid amount will be donated back to Work To Ride from Area II
  • More five-star riders have donated lessons than anywhere in the world! Yes it's true! Go look!
