Last night eventers celebrated one another’s achievements and contributions to the sport during the 2017 USEA Year-End Awards at the Westin Long Beach hotel in Long Beach, California. James Wofford once again MC’d the event and USEA President Carol Kozlowski congratulated each recipient on stage.

Madeline Backus is the Advanced Young Adult Rider of the Year. She also won the $10,000 Rebecca Broussard National Developing Rider Award and the inaugural Wilton Fair Grant, given to a rider 29 and under who has not yet ridden for a senior U.S. team.
