The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased the announce a social media contest related to the USEA’s highest-scoring horse of all time, Ballynoe Castle RM.

Over his 11-year career, Ballynoe Castle RM aka ‘Reggie’ almost always finished an event within the top five. He traveled around the world competing at the world’s toughest events including Badminton, Burghley, Kentucky, and two FEI World Equestrian Games. He won countless events including the CCI3* (now CCI4*-L) at Jersey Fresh International in 2015, the CIC3* (now CCI4*-S) at Richland Park twice (2011 and 2015), and the Advanced division at the Millbrook H.T. four different times (2010, 2011, 2012, and 2015). Ballynoe Castle RM racked up a total of 1,696 USEA points (that’s over 300 points more than Winsome Adante, the horse who sits second on the USEA’s historical high point leaderboard).

Now happily retired, Breyer has recognized his incredible performance as an event horse through the creation of a Ballynoe Castle RM Breyer horse. The winner of this contest will receive their own special edition Ballynoe Castle RM Breyer horse! Please visit one of the three USEA social media channels below to find out how to play.

Special thank you to Breyer for this opportunity to host this contest. For more information on Breyer and Breyerfest, please click here.

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.
