USEA Joins the Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium

The United States Eventing Association will have a booth in the trade fair and sponsor an eventing demonstration at the Retired Racehorse Training Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium on October 4 and 5 at Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore, Maryland.

Of the 26 trainers showcasing their work with recently retired racehorses twelve are eventers, including Cathy Wieschoff, Erin Sylvester, Daniel Clasing, Allie Knowles, Emily Kocubinski, Jessica Bortner-Harris, Lara Knight, Amber Longreen, Elissa Ogburn, Jennifer Selvig, Heather Carlson, and Rebecca Bowman.

Eric Bull portable cross country jumps will be delivered to Pimlico on their way to the Young Event Horse Championships at Fair Hill two weeks later, and some of the Fair Hill CCI*** entries will appear for a special demonstration.

If you think OTTBs are only suited for eventing, attend the Makeover on Saturday evening for “Who Let The Cows Out.” You will see famous jockeys herding cattle into a pen on OTTB ranch horses.

Saturday and Sunday morning seminars include Rodney Jenkins, Diane Crump, Hilary Simpson, Patricia Vos, and others covering six topics to help you transition, train, and even sell your Thoroughbreds off the track.

And don’t miss the Eventing Nation bus sponsored by Bourbon Lane Stables that will shuttle people from Morven Park to the Thoroughbred Makeover Party at Pimlico where special guests will take over the microphone while the band is on break for Thoroughbred Storytelling.

“This event is an experiment that we know will succeed,” says RRTP founder and eventer Steuart Pittman. “We want to prove that Thoroughbred horses can still draw a crowd to the track after their racing careers are over. It’s all about increasing demand for these horses and educating folks along the way.”

USEA members will receive 10% off of tickets to the Symposium. Go here to order tickets, and type in USEA in the "promotional code" box. Visit the website for more info on the RRTP and the Symposium.

Now On Course: The Four Year Journey with My Horse Cross Match

On a crisp morning in December of 2016, I dragged my husband to Penn National to look at some horses to hopefully be my next eventing partner. I also had a horse to look at in Maryland at Kate Chadderton's farm. Keep in mind every horse I wanted to look at was a gelding. I did have a couple at Penn National that I really liked and then went to look at the one Kate had. After I rode the gelding at Kate's she asked me how I felt about mares. My response was, "I don't, but bring her out."
