USEA Podcast #258: Getting Back to Business

By USEA

We've been riding the "corona-coaster" for several weeks now, but with the hopeful return to competition on the horizon, Nicole Brown checks in with USEA CEO Rob Burk, USEA President Max Corcoran, and Chair of the FEI Eventing Committee David O'Connor for an update on what things will look like as we get back to business.

  • While the calendar has been massively disrupted - 82 events in total have been either canceled or postponed - 23 of those events have been rescheduled and another five events have been added to the calendar. Click here for a full list of those events.
  • There are many new protocols in place that will help protect everyone involved when competition resumes. In addition to adhering to CDC, WHO, state, and local guidelines, events will have to comply with the requirements and recommendations laid out by the USEF COVID-19 Action Plan. Take a look at the USEF COVID-19 Action Plan for details pertaining to both competition organizers and competitors.
  • Last week, the USEF and USEA hosted a joint webinar addressing the return to competition, which you can watch on demand here.

  • David O'Connor also chimes in to share what's been happening on the international eventing scene. FEI events will be using the World Health Organization's Risk Management Tool to assess risk prior to moving forward.
  • With respect to the Tokyo Olympics which have been rescheduled for 2021, all riders who are currently qualified will remain qualified as long as they achieve an MER at a CCI4*-S. Additionally, riders who have not yet qualified will now have until June of 2021 to obtain their qualifications.
