USEF COVID-19 Good Practices

As States start opening, we are wondering what will become of this riding and competing season. Yesterday, US Equestrian / USEF hosted an online meeting containing information and answering questions about what to expect at competitions. The meeting contains all aspects of good practices, even working around our barns. Everyone’s safety is a high priority, with that in mind to be successful we must follow all guidelines. A replay of yesterday’s meeting is available on USEF’s site. Please see the below Webinar link to watch.

Did You Remember to Renew?

While we have this quiet period, PLEASE take advantage and check to see if you have renewed your ACPS membership. If you did, you should have received a 2020 membership card by email (it’s possible very recent renewals might not). And thanks!

If you have not renewed, click on the Membership link and follow the directions for either renewing online (recommended) or you can print out a form and mail it in. If you aren’t sure of your status, send me an email at

We mailed out the March-April magazine to everyone including last year’s members, but we have to start whittling the list with the May-June issue, so please don’t delay. Meanwhile, stay safe!

Sky Miles Gets Her Swan Song At U.S. Pony Jumper National Championships

Lexington, Ky.—Aug. 10

After eight years of competing at USEF Pony Finals, Sky Miles is ending her career with a bang.

She didn’t touch a fence all weekend across four rounds of the U.S. Pony Jumper National Championship with Hallie Rush to earn individual gold today in her last competition before retiring to be bred.

There was a four-way tie for silver in tonight’s individual final, and in the end, overnight leader Devi Ferreira and Silver Charm took home that medal after a rail down in the first round. Her winning Zone 10 teammate Tabitha Okitsu and Spoot De La Jourlais took bronze.
