VHT hosted the inaugural Intercollegiate Championship in 2016 as well as the second edition this year. The Championship will return to VHT for one more year before moving on to a new venue.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is happy to welcome back World Equestrian Brands as the Title Sponsor of the Rider of the Year Leaderboard. World Equestrian Brands has been a longtime sponsor and supporter of the USEA. This year’s Rider of the Year will receive an Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad, generously provided by World Equestrian Brands. The prize will be awarded at the 2017 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention which takes place at the Westin Long Beach Hotel in Long Beach, California, December 6-10, 2017. In addition, World Equestrian Brands will be a Contributing Level Sponsor of the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Team Championships providing prizes to the top three winning teams.
Virginia Horse Trials (VHT) has once again broken its own record for entries, with 560 horses entered to compete at the October CCI and Horse Trials this week.
The competition includes Beginner Novice through Intermediate horse trials as well as international CCI2*, CIC2*, and CCI* levels. VHT will also host the Area II Championships and both Adult Rider and Intercollegiate Team Challenges.
“We are going to be very busy!” said VHT Organizer Andy Bowles. “We are thrilled at the numbers for this event and for our ability to offer so many levels, team challenges and championship courses. This kind of response means we are meeting the needs of our riders and making the right kind of upgrades.”
