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!

Pressure Proof with Daniel Stewart: The Quickie Plan

Last month we began a four-part series on mental preparation and the many kinds of pre-ride routines you can perform to control your emotions so they don’t take control of you. If you recall, the purpose of these routines is to give your brain the perception of predictability and control because as soon as your brain loses these it senses threat and stress which weakens your confidence and strengthens your jitters and fears.
