As part of Area 1, the Stoneleigh-Burnham School Equestrian Center has hosted USEA horse trials each summer and fall for many years.

We also did not find the competition to be financially feesable.The 2017 horse trials were invigorating! We found a great appreciation for another part of our sport. The first horse out of … [Read More]
