USEF Guidelines for Competitions will be shared. These guidelines have been developed by Dr. Mark Hart, USEF’s Team Physician and Chair of the Fédération Équestre Internationale Medical Committee, with input from competition management. Panelists will include USEF CEO Bill Moroney, Dr. Mark Hart, USEF General Counsel Sonja Keating,​ ESP President Michael Stone, and trainer John Madden.

This webinar event will be open to USEF members with 1,000 spots available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Register here. The virtual webinar will be held via Zoom. We encourage participants to submit questions in advance when registering. There will be a Q&A session following the presentation.

Statement About Plantation Field International CCI-S

Having this historic competition close isn't the right result for the sport, and the United States Eventing Association (USEA) is working hard to find a solution. The organizer and landowners operate exceptional events on a beautiful piece of land. We are deeply sensitive to the history of the word "plantation" and its connection to slavery; however, this property has no known connections to slavery and was instead named after 'plantings' on the property.
