    2023 Adult Riders Update

    Donna Bottner, Area II Adult Rider Coordinator:


    We are kicking off five adult team challenges this year, spread over the entire area from NJ to NC.

    The AEC’s will be capping Areas to 35 riders, which gives us approximately 2 teams at each level, This year, a letter of intent will be necessary for riders to file ahead of time to help the AEC organizers with scheduling.

    Adult Riders are also planning to again have a tailgate at the Maryland 5 star (Fair Hill) in the fall and may do a joint meetup with Area I riders invited to attend.

    Are you interested in helping this year to provide Adult Rider outreach at events? Please contact Donna if you would like to help.

    A Landsafe clinic is planned for late May, but Donna is looking for a property with an indoor arena that would  fit the criteria of the Landsafe requirements - if anyone could help, please contact her.

    The 2022 Area II Adult Rider of the Year was Katie Thornton, and 2022 Adult Rider Horse of the Year was Steddy Eddy, owned and ridden by Suzy Gehris. Many thanks to the beautiful D'yon cooler presented by Sagmae to Suzy at the Area II banquet in January. This year Sagmae and Alicia Daily Pottery will be sponsoring beautiful custom prizes to Adult Rider team competitions. Many thanks to our supporters!

  • Area II Year End Awards - May 2023 Update

    Registrations are rolling in! Thank you to everyone who has registered so far - don't forget, it's not an automatic signup. If you are already a USEA member, a Young Rider member or Adult Rider member, you must register separately for the Area II Year End Awards. We give lovely trophies in many categories! We have special awards for Irish, Thoroughbred, and Arab/Part-Arab event horses; reward our Master Riders; and give out lots of ribbons!

    The fee is just $25 for each horse/rider combination. Please be sure your numbers, etc. are correct, as we can't find you in the USEA results database if a number isn't right and we cannot correct the form post-registration. Many thanks to Kara Googins and Leah Zabarenko for assisting with the spreadsheet set up for score keeping this year! The DEADLINE for registration is August 1, and the fee doubles after. Here are the 2023 Year End Awards rules

    We will post the first scores spreadsheet later this week. Please check for errors - if you are not listed but have registered and paid your YEA fee, please send me an email. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). The results will be current up to April 21, 2023. We hope to post and update the spreadsheet each month.
