Now Accepting Nominations for 2017 USEA Appreciation Awards

Authored By: USEA

The USEA is now accepting nomiations for the 2017 USEA Apprecaiton Awards. This is an opportunity for the sport to recognize those horses and riders who excelled in eventing throughout the year and honor the very important people who have served the sport tirelessly both in a non-riding capacity and riding capacity during their golden years. 

While it is a simple matter of tabulating points earned in a competition to arrive at horse and rider awards, it is a very different proposition when it comes to the non-rider awards; these awards require nominations from our members.

The Appreciation Awards Committee is currently accepting nominations for the awards listed below. If you know someone who is deserving of one of these awards, please submit your nominations for consideration to:

Cathy Forsberg, Chairman of the USEA Appreciation Awards Committee
c/o USEA Attn: Rebecca Lertora
Email: [email protected]
Fax: (703) 779-0550.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, October 20, 2017.

The USEA Awards Dinner will be held during the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention, December 6-10, 2017 in Long Beach, California at the Westin Long Beach Hotel. You may register for Convention here.
