We’ve got some more changes to report in camp USEF, and they’re exciting ones: on May 1, 2022, Max Corcoran was appointed as the Eventing Elite Program and Team Facilitator. In her role, Corcoran will support the areas of communication, logistics, and management of the teams for the Eventing Programs to deliver sustained success at World and Olympic Games level. As the Facilitator, she will work closely with the interim Chef d’Equipe/Team Manager Bobby Costello and eventing staff to build solid lines of communication with athletes, grooms, owners, coaches, veterinarians, and all stakeholders linked to the athletes and develop the structures around the Elite Program and senior U.S. Eventing Team.

“I am really honored to be working with USEF and the Elite Program as the Eventing Elite Program and Team Facilitator,” said Corcoran. “The hope is that my years of experience grooming internationally and event organizing can help U.S. Eventing horses, athletes, grooms, and owners. I am looking forward to the exciting challenges ahead of us!”

Max has long been a huge part of US Eventing: she built her reputation as one of the world’s best grooms in her years on the road with the O’Connor Eventing Team, and actually began her career working for now interim chef Bobby Costello when she was 12. She’s been the USEA President since 2020 and also sits on a number of committees, is involved in event organising, has been an Olympic technical official, and continues to work in a hands-on capacity with many riders, most recently travelling to Luhmühlen with the US competitors. We look forward to seeing her tackle this exciting new role with the same wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm she has done with the rest of her roles. Congratulations, Max!
