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.
Hosting the Annual Meeting of Members each December has been a requirement set forth by the United States Eventing Association (USEA) by-laws (then the United States Combined Training Association) since 1959. This year, USEA members are gathering in St. Louis, Missouri, for the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention from Dec. 7 - Dec. 10 for four jam-packed days of educational seminars and open forums full of conversation surrounding our sport. Lunch on Friday, however, served as an opportunity for attendees to gather together for the USEA Meeting of Members once again.
As the 2023 competition year draws to a close and many of the high-performance and other riders are connecting at this year‘s USEA annual convention, the Great Meadow International organizers would like to update you on GMI.
