USEA to Suspend Recognizing
Events for Two Weeks

The USEA Board of Governors voted to suspend
recognizing any competitions under its
direct jurisdiction held in the U.S. at
the Beginner Novice, Novice, and Training levels
for a period of at least two weeks (14 days)
starting on Monday, March 16. The suspension
extends also to USEA recognized educational
activities, Young Event Horse, Future Event Horse,
and New Event Horse competitions.

Competitions held at the Modified level and above
continue to fall under the jurisdiction of the
US Equestrian Federation (USEF) and
Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI).
(See USEF recommendations below.)

Unrecognized Eventing Activities
Competitions that choose to run between
March 16-30 will do so without USEA recognition.
Competitors attending those events will not
be able to earn year-end or leaderboard points,
USEA Classic Series qualifications, or
USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC)
qualifications. If attending any eventing related
activity the USEA strongly recommends
that you follow the CDC guidelines for travel
