By USEF - Edited Press Release

The United States Equestrian Federation announced on Wednesday, April 13 that Robert (Bobby) Costello has been appointed as the Interim Eventing Chef d’Equipe and Team Manager. Costello will serve in this role through September 30, 2022, which will include the World Championships in Pratoni, Italy.

Costello's achievements include winning team gold in the 2003 Pan American games aboard the Thoroughbred gelding Dalliance (by Son of Que) and placing 8th individually at the 2000 Sydney Olympics Games aboard the Thoroughbred gelding Chevalier, who would also help Costello achieve top placings at the four and five-star level at Kentucky, Fair Hill International, and Burghley. He has since turned his attention to the development of his students, many of which have earned top placings at every FEI level, and has served as the chair of the USEF Active Athletes committee (2001-2008), USEF Eventing High-Performance committee (2009-2012), and USEF Eventing Selection Committee for Olympic, World, and Pan-American Games. He was presented with the Wofford Cup in 2004.

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.

The VIP Volunteer: Lisa Pragg

Lisa Pragg is a busy woman, but between her normal day job and competing her own 19-year-old Thoroughbred Impeccable she still prioritizes time to volunteer - both at horse trials and as a volunteer firefighter. Pragg understands the importance that volunteers play in the eventing community and makes sure to give whatever time she can back as a fair gesture.
