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!

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.

Events A-Z: Bayou Gulch Horse Trials

The Colorado Horse Park (CHP) in Parker, Colorado, has deep roots in the sport of eventing. Originally known as High Prairie Farms, owner Helen Krieble purchased the property in the early 1990s with one dream: hosting horse trials. That dream took off and for many years High Prairie Farm was host to many eventing competitions. Krieble later donated the ground to Douglas County with the agreement that the land would be used for equestrian sport and the CHP was born.
