    I would second the FB search. I run both a website and FB page that has all the schooling shows in Areas IV/V & Eastern IX but it's difficult as a lot of USEA Associates either do not have web pages...

    And maybe we have one of the main problems right here. Both horse and rider need to be at least as fit to complete the modern short course safely. It might be more akin to a sprinter than a...

    I hope eventing does not follow Formula 1 - at least as how long it took to make the sport safer. If you were a driver in the 50s & 60s, you had a less than one in ten chance of surviving the year,...

    St. Louis also has a thriving eventing scene centered around the Queeny Park HT plus a Hunt and Hunter-Jumpers. There's several people on this forum who should be able to give you more details.

    Have noticed that a lot of riders also keep their bridle number on for XC - can be very useful (other than for JJs) for a photographer to know which bay OTTB it is.

    Just an observation from watching the HT at Ocala this last weekend; the Open & higher divisions ran in traditional order but the lower "Rider" ones ran Stadium then XC with several not making it to...

    Several events in Area IV have always run in the traditional format with stadium for all divisions on Sunday (and working down from Prelim to make the course setting easier). They have worked up...

    Ajierene,

    A similar argument (only time when everyone is back in form) was used to set the current date for the AECs but mid-September really messes up the Fall calendar and takes 3 weekends away from the...

    Kaybee,
    I doubt any existing event could expand sufficiently to cover the numbers - and levels up to Advanced - of the AECs. In the past, perhaps the Wayne venue (which held both Flutie's Maui Jim...

    Another factor that will count against a lot of venues is the lack of sufficient close & affordable accommodations. Several possible sites fail that requirement. I wonder if there would be more...

    Given past worries about speed, why has the limit for speed penalties been pushed up to Prelim for all divisions rather than the next division up? - especially if that division's speed has increased...
