U.S. Equestrian Website To Debut on July 24

Gladstone, New Jersey and Lexington, Kentucky—July 23, 2003—The new website of U.S. Equestrian, the expected new National Governing Body (NGB) for equestrian sport, will debut on Thursday, July, 24.

The website, developed by representatives of USA Equestrian and the United States Equestrian Team (USET), will be available by accessing the address,

The website is in the preliminary development stages and will continue to evolve and expand in preparation of U.S. Equestrian Federation becoming the NGB for equestrian sport on December 1, 2003. The website contains current information on the status of the new NGB, expected to be approved by the U.S. Olympic Committee this fall. Included are details on the timetable for the start of the NGB, its by-laws, officers, Board of Directors and various working groups.

There is also a section for news, links to the websites of USA Equestrian and the USET, and a way to contact the executive directors of those two organizations. Shortly, there will be a special section for equestrian athletes. Until the approval of the new NGB by the USOC, both websites, and will continue operating. Once USOC approval is granted to U.S. Equestrian, these sites will transform into the websites of the USA Equestrian Trust and the USET Foundation.

“We anticipate that the U.S. Equestrian website will eventually become the definitive source of information for people interested in our sport,” said USET Executive Director Bonnie B. Jenkins. “We appreciate all the time and work that has been put in to get the Federation started.”

“This has been a joint project of USA Equestrian and the USET,” said USA Equestrian Executive Director Lori L. Rawls. “We are very excited to have it go live and we invite everyone interested in equestrian sports to visit the site and give us their feedback.”
