The 2008 Adequan United States Eventing Association (USEA) Gold Cup Series kicks off this weekend and begins a seven-month stretch of exciting competitions around the country. Running from March to September, the Series includes 13 premier eventing competitions representing top-level riders and horses. On the line are prizes, money, trophies and accumulated points that will earn the leaders big year-end purses and the coveted title of Gold Cup champions.
Three more events are scheduled this spring: Southern Pines Horse Trials in North Carolina during mid March; Galway Downs Horse Trials in Southern California during the last weekend of March; and The Fork Horse Trials in North Carolina during the first weekend in April.
Nine more events round out the Series, from July through September. The year-end champions will receive their trophies, prizes, and prize money at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention this December in New Orleans.
