If you needed one more excuse to fly south for the winter, the USEA has you covered. They’ll be holding their annual meeting and convention in beautiful Fort Lauderdale Florida December 7-11, and they’ve just released the tentative schedule for the weekend. It’s packed with opportunities to mingle, add your voice, and learn from the best in the business. And it’s at the beach. In December. I know.
The event is being held at the Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood Curio Collection by Hilton, and it’s exactly this far from the ocean:
But even that won’t be able to tempt you away from the lineup of educational opportunities, which tentatively include:
- Show jumping seminar with Richard Jeffery (including an offsite barn visit for some clinic time)
- Emergency injury management in eventing with Kelley Daniels
- Function vs. Fitness with Wendy Murdoch
- Advanced dressage training with Marilyn Payne
- Financial bookkeeping for eventers with Helen Donnell
- Eventing Safety: The Performance-Risk Continuum with Dr. Rob Stevenson
- Rider Fitness Bootcamp with Daniel Stewart
- EquiRatings with Sam Watson and Diarm Byrne
- Equestrian Sports Psychology Seminar: Turning Setbacks into Comebacks with Daniel Stewart
There are also a number of open meetings and forums that will be a great opportunity to learn and network with eventers from around the country, such as gatherings for USEF Event Owners Task Force, USEA Intercollegiate Programs, Eventing calendar planning workshop, and Young Riders. Also sure to be a hot ticket forum will be the Rio Olympic Games Recap with David O’Connor on Saturday afternoon.
