USEA Professional Horseman’s Council Presents: The Event College at Rolex Kentucky

By USEA

The USEA is excited to announce that The Event College at Rolex Kentucky, presented by the Professional Horseman’s Council, will be taking place at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event (Lexington, Ky.) next week.

This special event, designed to educate the public on the sport of three-day eventing, will take place Friday, April 25, through Sunday, April 27, during the competition.

Anyone can attend The Event College - and tuition is free! The professors are well-esteemed individuals within the eventing community, such as Sinead Halpin, Karen O’Connor, Leslie Law, Max Corcoran, Cathy Wieschhoff and Rick Wallace.

Each day, the respective professor will meet the “students” at meeting points identified with The Event College flags, and hold a fifteen-minute discussion on whichever phase of the competition is occurring, pointing out what the horses and riders are trying to achieve in the warm up areas versus the competition ring. Questions are encouraged!

Stop by the USEA booth to enroll and receive a schedule with meeting points and times. The tentative schedule is as follows:

Friday: Sinead Halpin will discuss what horse and rider combinations are trying to achieve in the dressage warm up, and how it translates to the show ring. Leslie Law will be leading a cross-country course walk in the morning with invaluable commentary.

Saturday: Rick Wallace and Cathy Wieschhoff will walk the crowd through different cross-country complexes, explaining how the riders will approach them. Max Corcoran will meet students at the vet box in the afternoon to explain the care that the horses will receive after cross-country.

Sunday: Karen O’Connor will meet the students near the show jumping warm up and explain what the riders are trying to achieve as they prepare their horses for a double-clear round.

The USEA would like to thank those who are making this year’s Event College at Rolex Kentucky possible, including the Professional Horseman’s Council, all of our professors, and our docent, Terri Kemp.

Olympic Memories with Gina Miles

“My whole journey has been a series of interconnected circles,” says Gina Miles.

The central compass point of those circles has been the Olympics. The Games are what set the Californian on her path, and where she reached her pinnacle - the individual silver medal in Hong Kong in 2008.

Gina, now 47, was 10 when the Olympics came to Los Angeles in 1984.

Crossing Oceans with U.S. Olympian Tiana Coudray

Plenty of event riders have chosen to cross oceans and base themselves thousands of miles away from “home” in pursuit of their career dreams - look at the likes of New Zealanders Sir Mark Todd and Andrew Nicholson, and now Tim and Jonelle Price, while Andrew Hoy, Clayton Fredericks and of course Boyd Martin and Phillip Dutton have set sail from Australian shores. Not many American riders do it, though, probably because the sport is big enough and competitive enough in the U.S. not to make it necessary.
