“The good old days” have made a comeback through The United States Eventing Association’s (USEA) revitalization of the long format three-day event in the USEA Classic Series. Roads and tracks, steeplechase, vet boxes, formal horse inspections, and three phases taking place over three days are all adrenaline-pumping elements of USEA Classic Series events. Blending the past with the present, the USEA offers this throwback format of eventing for competitors from the Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels.
Perhaps the best part about the downtime all eventers experience in the winter is the opportunity to look ahead at the upcoming year and plan out goals for the season. Maybe this year your goal is to compete in a long-format USEA Classic Series event!
The USEA Classic Series keeps the spirit of the classic long-format three-day events alive for Beginner Novice through the Preliminary levels. Competitors have the opportunity to experience the rush of endurance day, including roads and tracks, steeplechase, the vet box, and cross-country, as well as participate in formal veterinary inspections and educational activities with experts on the ins and outs of competing in a long-format three-day event.
