On May 1, 2022, Max Corcoran was appointed as the Eventing Elite Program and Team Facilitator. In her role, Corcoran will support the areas of communication, logistics, and management of the teams for the Eventing Programs to deliver sustained success at World and Olympic Games level. As the Facilitator, she will work closely with the interim Chef d’Equipe/Team Manager, Bobby Costello, and eventing staff to build solid lines of communication with athletes, grooms, owners, coaches, veterinarians, and all stakeholders linked to the athletes and develop the structures around the Elite Program and senior U.S. Eventing Team.

“I am really honored to be working with USEF and the Elite Program as the Eventing Elite Program and Team Facilitator,” said Corcoran. “The hope is that my years of experience grooming internationally and event organizing can help U.S. Eventing horses, athletes, grooms, and owners. I am looking forward to the exciting challenges ahead of us!”

Corcoran has worked in nearly every aspect of the industry, most notably serving as a vital member of the O’Connor Event Team, working alongside Karen and David O’Connor for 11 years. With the OCET, she managed the barn, as well as traveled to the Olympic Games, World Championships, Pan American Games, and numerous CCIs all over North America and Europe. Following her time with the O'Connors, Corcoran went on to groom and serve as a stable manager for the Canadian and Venezuelan Equestrian Teams.

In addition to her extensive horse care knowledge, Corcoran utilized her organizational skills moving into the event management sector, working with events including the Middleburg Horse, Great Meadow International, The Event at Rebecca Farm, The Fork, Ocala Horse Trials, Ocala Jockey Club, the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, and countless others. Having joined the USEA Board of Governors as an “at-large” member in 2017, officially serving on the board in 2018, and then stepping up into the role of USEA President in 2020, Corcoran will now impart her unique perspective as a groom and organizer to the table as the Eventing Elite Program and Team Facilitator.

With the ultimate goal of pulling from her personal experiences traveling all over the world for the sport of eventing, Corcoran aims to share her invaluable knowledge to as many in the sport as possible. Having been a pivotal member of the sport for the past few decades the USEA is honored to announce Corcoran's newest appointment.
