That’s a wrap on the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year’s convention did not disappoint, with The Big Easy serving as a fitting backdrop to capture the true spirit of energy and enthusiasm that encompasses eventing in the U.S.
USEA President Carol Kozlowski said it best in her address to the Board of Governors: “There is a sense of camaraderie that is unique to our discipline.” The convention serves as a time to reminisce on the past year, recognize the countless incredible people who make this sport so wonderful, and recharge for the year to come.
Please join me in thanking Jennifer Hardwick and her team for organizing yet another superb convention. Mark your calendars — next year’s convention will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, on Dec. 11-15, 2019, and will mark the 60th anniversary of the USEA.
