I just got into Eventing last summer, and I just learned then about areas...I am in Area VIII, and here are some jumps (first 2 are from a Very Green course and the others are Intro level) from my area! :D

And that last one's the best...they threw a tire jump into the Intro course at this Mini Trial!! lol I, of course, jumped ahead and we refused and I went right up over her head! :lol:

An area is just a specific part of the country, as governed by the USEA. It splits things up in the way that USEF 'zones' do for the sake of points, area committees, etc.
I live in Area 1 (alas, no pictures from here), was a working student in Area 2, and am moving to Area 3 next month to be a working student for a different rider.
Here are some Area 2 pics - this is Loudoun Hunt Pony Club Horse Trials (say that five times fast) at Morven Park, BN:


From MCTA at Shawan Downs, Novice:

No personal pics... but here to represent Area IV! We are Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin! USEA Area IV

I'm from Kansas and have evented in this area my whole life.... but I will only be a part of Area IV until August. Next, I'm moving onto Area VIII because I'm moving to Kentucky to go to college! I'll be 15 mins from KY Horse park and I'm so excited!

Awesome!! Are you going to the first show (Grand River Hunt) at the end of June? :D
Is it a Mini Trial?
I am hoping to get my youngster out to as many as I can.
We will be coming home to Ohio after living out of state at the end of April, so I'm looking now for a place to board and get settled. I'm trying to get him as conditioned as I can here before we leave, so he'll be ready for his first entrance into Eventing. :)

Are you going to be there? That would be fun to meet up!

Yes, it's part of this mini trial series...

Northeast Ohio Mini Trial Series

My friends Hilary and Katherine and I will be in them -- Katherine at the Novice level, not sure which Hilary will be doing yet (BN or N probably), and I'll be at the Very Green level :) Maybe we'll see you there! I'm normally 1 of maybe 2 buckskins that always show up, and mine's a pony with a bald face so we're normally easy to spot! ;-)

Area I here. I've only been doing combined shows and just schooling the XC courses. Hopefully we'll have show pics to display by fall. That's our goal for this year.

Haha, I'll let you know if we are going to some. I sure hope so. He's still extremely green, but completely willing and brave. I just don't want to push him too much, even if he is eager. I'll probably stick to Baby Beg. Novice this year. :)

You should!! Sandie and I are both very green and we did the Intro division last summer :) SO much fun and such a great learning experience for both of us!
