The American Society of Association Executives defines an association as, "An organization or group of individuals affiliated with one another who share a common purpose, interest, or mission and exist for the mutual enrichment and advancement of their membership". “That’s a very nice concept,” we might say, “It rolls off the tongue easily,” and “We might even use it if we can remember it”.
But what does it really mean when applied to us, the members of the United States Eventing Association? For 59 years, the USEA (formerly USCTA) has existed for each and every one of us and all those who have come before us - all who share the common purpose and mission of making the sport of eventing the greatest equestrian sport in the world. We share our passion for horses, for their care and well-being. We share the common purpose of educating, teaching, and training our horses. We come together to collaborate on ideas to make the sport more enjoyable and safer for each other and for all those we hope will join us in our work to keep the fun in our sport.

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
Horses and riders in 12 divisions, from Starter to CCI4*-S, tackled the show jumping phase of competition Sunday at The Event at TerraNova, over a track designed by Nick Granat in the world-class setting of the main arena. Prize money was awarded in all divisions.
