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.

You’ve likely spent some time scouring the USEA Calendar to line up your 2022 competition schedule. Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to plan some cross-country schooling outings to make sure you and your horse are as ready as possible. If you own or manage a facility that welcomes guests for haul-in schooling, you’ve likely noticed horses and their humans showing up in droves to get their practice in. A successful off-site schooling day has many, many moving parts. From paperwork and payment to safety, these best practices for hosts and guests will help everything go as smoothly as possible.
US Equestrian is pleased to announce the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team for the CHIO Aachen CCIO4*-S at CHIO Aachen World Equestrian Festival in Aachen, Germany, from July 1-2, 2022. The team will be led by Chef d’Equipe Bobby Costello.
