US Equestrian Team Headquarters

Proud to call New Jersey its home, the USET is the non-profit organization which represents the United States in international equestrian sports. For over four decades, the USET has proudly carried the responsibility of selecting, training, equipping, and financing teams of the highest possible standards to represent the U.S. in Pan American and Olympic Games, World Championships, and other international competitions. It is an exciting task considering a 1997 study performed by the American Horse Council Federation which determined the U.S. economy is currently spurred by 6.9 million horses and driven by the 7.1 million equestrian participants associated with horses. Participants in the equestrian industry generate an economic impact of $23.3 billion per year based on partnerships formed between Americans and their horses.

Once at USET Headquarters you will walk into a stable built in 1916 which has been described as one of the largest and most lavish in the United States. Built with brick and concrete, reinforced with steel, the ornate interior includes carriage rooms (which have become USET executive offices) corridors and harness rooms with tile walls, terrazo floors, and brass fittings.

As in any other sport, only a handful of those cross-species partnerships will ever be selected to represent the U.S. in international team and individual competition, after demonstrating a consistent pattern of success at the toughest level of their sport. Unlike participants in any other sport, male and female equestrian athletes compete as equals, unabridged by age. (And they are permitted to bring their pets to the Games.) Bringing an accomplished horse to a world class competition-and winning- requires another unique element to equestrian sports: a symbiotic and spectacular partnership between human and animal. In order to get the job done, both must have acquired the skills necessary to win internationally and remain in constant communication.

Competitive members of the USET have repeatedly teamed up with their horses over the last 46 years to win an impressive 27 Olympic and 54 Pan American Games Medals in Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing. The USET first sent a team to compete at a World Driving Championship in 1980, and has competed at every World Championship since. The USET reached new heights in driving in 1991 when it won the Pairs World Championship in Zwettl, Austria. That win was a key factor in the naming of Gladstone, New Jersey, as the host of the 1993 Pairs World Championship!

Adding to the driving boom were victories in 1992, when U.S. drivers won the Masters Trophy at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in England for the second time in four years, and in 1994, when Lisa Singer became the first lady driver to win the National Pairs Driving Championship. Singer took her place in history again in 1997 when she became the first driver to win the Pairs Division EquiSilk Triple Crown.

In 1992, the USET added Endurance Riding to its roster, bringing its number of equestrian disciplines for which it oversees in international competition to five. Endurance Riding is best described as a mounted marathon covering distances from 50 to 100 miles. U.S. Endurance riders have had tremendous success demonstrating the fittest horse and rider combinations as demonstrated by the Team's three World Championships in 1988, 1990 and 1992. The U.S. also won individual Gold Medals in 1986,1994 and 1996 and also won the team Gold Medal in 1988.

The future shines like gold as more and more public riding facilities are opening across the country and horse shows in the U.S. are at an all time high.

Additional horsepower was added at the 1998 annual meeting when the USET Board of Trustees voted to assume responsibility for the international riding discipline of Reining. According to USET Executive Director Robert C. Standish, "This is an exciting opportunity for the USET because the level of interest in Reining is staggering. Reiners going to international events will now be representing the USET and this is sure to have a significant impact on our membership and donor support."

Visiting The Center

Visit the USET and journey through the Nostalgic Trophy room's glass enclosed walnut cases, stained glass ceiling lights, and oak flooring. See what treasures America's finest equestrian athletes won and brought back to Gladstone. There are coveted ribbons and awards surrounded by a wonderful pictorial timeline illustrating exactly how the Team positioned itself over the years among the world's strongest equestrian powers.

Individual visitors and groups are encouraged to visit the USET Olympic Training Center and Headquarters in Gladstone at any time! Once at USET Headquarters you will walk into a stable built in 1916 which has been described as one of the largest and most lavish in the United States. Built with brick and concrete, reinforced with steel, the ornate interior includes carriage rooms (which have become USET executive offices) corridors and harness rooms with tile walls, terrazo floors, and brass fittings. The original layout included 40 rooms, including 10 sleeping rooms for the staff, an apartment for the manager, eight bathrooms, and recreation rooms.

See just how far the Team has come since the days prior to 1949 when the United States Cavalry both furnished and subsidized the equestrian teams that officially represented our country. With the mechanization of the Cavalry, we were left with no equestrian representation at all for either our own international events or the Olympic Games. So, in 1950, the USET was organized by a group of interested sportsmen to fill this breach. Today, the USET is wholly financed through tax deductible contributions made by individual, corporate and organizational supporters.

US Equestrian Team headquarters is located at Hamilton Farm on Pottersville Rd. in Gladstone, just west of Route 206. Excluding events on weekends, office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. For more information on how you can be a part of the gold medal action and family fun or to schedule a guided tour call (908)234-1251 or visit the USET website.

Greetings, my ├▒ame is Rosie Herran. I currently purchased a young Oldenburg warm blood (Louie) for my daughter. He is 7 year old green gelding with a lot of potential.

Horses have been my life for the last 10 years. Since the age of 8 I've wanted to compete in the Olympics and I haven't lost that dream. I have just turned 16 and have been competing in dressage schooling shows with my horse. Even though I haven't competed on a higher level I believe I can be just the rider the USET needs. All I need is a high performance horse and a trainer who is willing to help me achieve this goal. I know I would most likely not be able to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics even though I would be more than willing to give it my best shot. I will not disappoint. I have lots of videos of my riding if you would like them. I am very serious about this so please consider me. Thank you.\r\n\r\nAnnie Davis,\r\nJacksonville Florida

Hello,\r\nI am writing for my friend. Her name is Liz Hedley. She has been riding since she was 6 and is now 13. She honestly is the best horseback rider I know. She hasn't competed but her trainers have said that she could compete in the Rio Olympics if she had the right training. I have contacted you because more than anything, she deserves this. My father recently went off to war and she introduced me to a new proffession- jumping.She currently is jumping at 4 ft. something. I have been doing research about the requirements and she is so ready. Her parents are willing to ship in a horse from anywhere in the world if you say yes. She is homeschooled and has A LOT of free time. We always go to church together and I asked her what she prays to God about and she said that her family is always safe and that she could compete in the olympics. I beg that you would please email me if you are considering her. She is willing and a hard worker. Her family can afford a lot but with the economy going down, she is worried(i dont know why) that her chances are slimming down. Please respond ASAP.\r\nThanks and God Bless

Hi I'm 11 and I've been riding since I was 7. I haven't had much training and I've never been to a horse show before but I really want to learn dressage cross country and show jumping. I live in Michigan so there aren't many places for me to go riding, or many horse shows. I really want to if not win a medal, get to the olympics someday. I wanted to know if you have any summer camps or clinics for young riders. If you have any suggestions of where I should go to get lessons and to start training please let me know.

I have read some of the above questions, mine is much the same. Where do you start on your road to the Olympic Team or riding in the Rolex? Not sure what road/path to take to get to the professional level? Just know our little town horse barn! Nice as it may be, it is not at the level that I think we would someday need to be on! Just not sure where to go, what to do, I understand the hard work, dedication and life long determination that it takes, just not sure were or how to start this journey? Suggestions? Thanks so much - Dawn

My name is Carlos Genoves. Born in Mexico City and riding since I was 8.I have been part of the Mexican Equestrian Team.\r\n I went to college in Southern California where in my spare times had the chance of riding with Jimmy Williams, Hap Hansen, JJ Smith, Gigi Green, Kost and Jenny Karassisis and some other great horsemen. I am very proud of everythnig I learned from them and thankfull to them for sharing their knowledge.\r\n At any rate, I am intrested in finding out who will be able to help me achieve a perfect showgrounds setting. I have been currently encouraged by a good friend and sponsor to turn his 32 Acre ranch (located just 45 miutes outside Mexico City) into a showground facility for equestrian competiton. I would like to ask you who can you recommend who can help me out with this task from A to Z, all the way from the footing of the jumping areas to the organization itself.There is an very large, and increasing every year equestrian market in Mexico City, who I am sure will enjoy a perfect showground setting. \r\n Please let me know if you can help me with this great experience.\r\n Thanks for youe help and time.\r\n Carlos Genoves

Hello. I have been riding since I was five years old and started competing at seven. Since then, I have competed in two AA shows in jumpers and started jumping four feet. It has always been my dream to be an olympic rider but where do I start? My trainer use to coach the Canadian Olympic team and has given me life long opportunities such as riding her clients' horses and possibly work in Shanghai for a few weeks. I take clinics every month from Roy Toppings and would love to pursue my dream. Would it be possible to watch and learn from the olympic riders some time?\r\nThanks,\r\nChanning

I noticed a lot of questions for this post on how to qualify. Remember that the Olympic equestrian sports are specific disciplines, so make sure that you stay active in your chosen discipline and never pass up training, clinics, or coaching from a professional.\r\n\r\nAs far as "camps" go, keep yourself updated on ex-Olympians and riders who are currently on the circuit in your area. For example, in the winter you can travel with a lot of the four-star eventers down south for the entire season and get training. \r\n\r\nA lot of upper-level riders also offer coaching, training, and clinics year-round, so get familiar with those riders and keep yourself updated on their websites.\r\n\r\nIf you're a jumper, start training and get under a trainer who is already at the level you want to be at, and aim for HITS and shows of that caliber.\r\n\r\nIf you're an eventer, groom for or train with a current 4-star eventer, winter with them down in SC or FL, summer up north, plan on a lot of travel. Eventers have a great team atmosphere. (USEA)\r\n\r\nIf you're a dressage rider, compete in USDF, get a Grand-Prix trainer or previous Grand Prix rider and compete in the USDF, and again, plan on a lot of travel and expenses with any of these. \r\n\r\nEventers are very concentrated on the east coast, with the Rolex being in KY. Jumper shows are most prestigious in FL and NY, with the west being a big hot spot in CA and AZ.\r\n\r\nEducate yourself, not only on the discipline and the show circuit, but on the riders, trainers, and horses that are upper-level, so that you know who to look up to, who to ask questions.\r\n\r\nCheck out the FEI, USET, USEF websites!\r\n\r\nMake lots of friends, they'll always help!

Hello, I was trying to find the coverage on TV for the US Equestrian Team. We live in the Bluegrass (KY Horsepark area) region of Kentucky and am ashamed to say that the local stations did not have it on. If I see any more swimming or gymnastics or beach volleyball...I'm going to scream. I am very disappointed.\r\nWhere are the Equestrians?\r\nVeronica\r\n

I am very, very interested in this years Olympic Games and had a few questions such as, how much does it cost to qualify for the Equestrian division of this game? What is the most common breed that competes? How old are the riders and their four legged companions? What happens to these horses once they are finished with the games?

I am using my mom's email address, but I am doing a report on Olympic Events and I chose the Equestrian competition. Who are some of our American athletes, my mom and I could not find names. Can you help? Thank you and Good Luck! I love gymnastics, but I hope to get to see the Equestrian competition. :)

hi,\r\ni am a jr. rider i show on the arabian, saddlebred, and open circut. i was wondering if it would be possible, if i did well enough on the circut to make it on the team. my mother is a trainer and as i already said, i am a jr. rider but i want to excel enough that rather than just showing in national and world shows, i could someday be on the team. i own many of my own horses, i just wanna know what i need to do, or if it is even possible....please reply.

Hey I love horses so much and my dream has always been to compete in the Equestrian Olimpics. I was wondering if I could ever come to the stable and take a tour and maybe even meet some of the riders and talk to them. Is that possible? Thank you.

I will be in the area on Saturday, March 1. Does the Equestrian Center have Saturday hours for tours? The stable and trophy room sound fascinating. I hope I get a chance to see them.
