USEA Convention Registration is Now Open!


The 2017 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention is heading to the West Coast, and we want to see you there! From December 6-10, eventers will gather together at the Westin Long Beach Hotel in Long Beach, California to discuss, learn and celebrate the sport. With beautiful scenery and an exciting local community, Long Beach has something for everyone.

Convention registration is open. Register now and take advantage of early bird pricing. Available only for a limited time – this special fee saves you over $50.

Click here for Convention Registration Form, or sign up via Online Services.

Convention has something for everyone, but this year will focus on honoring the organizers – those hardworking members without whom the sport wouldn’t exist. Get a look behind the scenes of how an event is put on and maybe learn a few tips to help out your local organizer.

In addition, there will be a plethora of lectures and presentations about the future of the sport, horse care, riding, training, veterinary medicine, and much, much more! Attendees can attend as many meetings as they want, and will be sure to go home with a bounty of knowledge.

After a day full of learning, enjoying the company of fellow eventers, and adding your input to discussions about your sport, head out on the town to enjoy the sunshine of Long Beach.

Just a few of the highlights you’ll have to look forward to include:

  • USEA Board of Governors’ Welcome Reception on Thurs, Dec. 7 at the Pacific of the Americas Aquarium. Everyone is welcome to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks from the cash bar. Meet members of the USEA Board of Governors, catch up with friends, and enjoy the views of the aquarium.
  • USEA Annual Meeting of Members on Saturday, Dec. 8 featuring keynote speaker, Boyd Martin. Over lunch, we discuss the current business and future of U.S. Eventing followed by a speech from one of America’s top eventers and our top WEG finisher in 2010, and 2014.
  • USEA Year-End Awards Dinner on Saturday, Dec. 8. Hosted by the legendary Jim Wofford, cheer on your friends and fellow riders (or maybe even yourself!) for their achievements this year.
  • Trade Fair. Get your holiday shopping done early with some of your favorite equestrian vendors.
