Trailer Parking for Team Challenge
Posted by Event Mgmt. on Sun 12 Oct, 2014
The KHP has asked us to make everybody aware of the trailer parking plan for the week ahead. There are several large groups at the park and we all need to be considerate of each other.

All trailers for those who have stalls will need to be dropped out front in the main parking lot after you unload. The Alltech parking area will be in use by the Mounted Police group.

Day shippers will need to park in Tent City. NO parking will be allowed at any other location. Please follow the signs posted for non-stabled horse parking.

There is an invitational cross-country meet on Saturday, so add a few extra minutes to your travel time to accommodate the extra traffic at the front entrance and along Cigar Ln headed back towards stabling.

For those of you who are new to the KHP, you will enter the park via the front entrance and stop at the Gate to get your parking pass. From there you will go around the roundabout and turn Right on Cigar Ln to get to stabling. Follow the signs and turn right on Nina Bonnie Blvd. The entrance to the barns is on your left about 500 feet ahead. Stall charts will be posted at the rear door of the Show Office, which is located just beyond the drive to the stabling (right end of the building). Stabling will also be posted online by Monday.

Drive safely and we will see you soon!

Team Challenge Entry Update Oct 3
Posted by Event Mgmt. on Fri 03 Oct, 2014
A new Entry List has been posted. All teams have been assembled. We will continue to replace withdrawn riders from the wait lists throughout the week. The new rider will take the place on the team which has lost a member.

If you are on a wait list but no longer wish to be considered, please email the secretary at so we can remove your name from the lineup.

If you do wish to remain on the list, but have a date certain beyond which you do not want to accept an opening, please email that date to the secretary.

We will send an email message to each rider as his name comes to the top of the lists, but we do need a timely response of acceptance, or we must proceed to the next name in line.

Thanks for your consideration and overwhelming interest in our event!

Replaced riders in this process will receive refunds as per USEA rules. We will continue to monitor the waitlists through the weekend preceding the start of competition. All checks will be shredded after the event for those who are not accepted, unless notified otherwise at the event email

2014 Rule Changes - Membership/Registration USEA
Posted by Event Mgmt. on Tue 23 Sep, 2014
Attention: Competitors!
Many riders who have not been members of USEA in the past, or had not registered their horses, must now comply with a new rule in effect. To begin this process, go to Join USEA You will need to create an online account if you do have one already. The links for Horse registration is on the upper right of this page as well.

Effective December 1, 2013:

USEA requires that all competitors, including foreign competitors, be members of the USEA in order to compete at USEA-recognized competitions at the Novice level and above.
In addition, all horses including foreign horses must be registered with the USEA with Full or Limited registration status at the Novice level and above. There will be no exceptions for national levels of competition, including classic format 3Day events. Check the Show Requirements page linked on the left toolbar for more information, particularly in regard to FEI level events.

All Beginner Novice riders must have a USEA ID number. ID numbers do not require membership and can be created by going to the USEA home page and clicking on Online Services. Click “New User?” to create profile. If you choose to remain a non-member with ID only, you will need to submit the USEA nonmember fee with your entry.
All horses competing at the Beginner Novice level must be registered with at least a Restricted status. There is no cost to register a horse at Restricted status, but the owner or rider must have a USEA ID number to register the horse.

In summary, every entry must contain USEA numbers for both horse and rider, and may also require BN rider nonmember fee if applicable.

For riders who must join or renew late in the year to compete, USEA does offer a pro-rated membership fee bridging 2014-2015. If you join on or after Oct 1, 2014, you may pay $25 membership for 2014 plus the full yearly rate for 2015, $85 for riders over 18 years old, $60 for junior riders. Horse registrations are lifetime processes, so those fees are not affected by time of year.

Team Challenge Entry Status
Posted by Event Mgmt. on Mon 22 Sep, 2014
Hagyard Midsouth 3Day & Team Challenge HT has been blessed with yet another record entry. We have wait lists for all levels!

Since your entries will be wait listed we have asked XEntry to stop accepting credit card payments on your behalf. Otherwise your funds would have been committed for a long interval with the possibility that we would need to refund you after the event.

The riders in the BN level will be uploaded in the next few days, and then we will manage the accepted list in accordance with the Wait List & Substitution policy linked on the event page. The Draw was conducted last week per the rules, and we do have full teams and individual entries postmarked on Opening Date that are still on the wait lists for some levels. We do not post the wait lists online.

We understand the urge to email individually to ask how you can improve your position on your wait list, or to ask what your wait listed number is. Please understand that each email takes time we need to complete the entry list, prepare all the reports, score sheets, orders of go, program pages that will be needed to conduct the event. We are always happy to answer your questions, but if you know your entry postmark, you have a general idea of your place in line. It is early days for substitutions, and we will add riders promptly and do repeated updates of the Entry List.

This event has a complex daily schedule and our wait lists are maintained by level within the HT and the 3Day divisions. We will replace riders who have withdrawn with entries on the matching level wait list in strict postmark order. The final assembly of teams of four for the HT divisions will be completed at Close for the HT. If your wait listed team has been accepted in full by then, we will re-group and maintain your team as originally submitted. If not, we will fill out all short teams of 3, and then assemble composite teams from those riders on the accepted list who remain.

Please notify the secretary at the event email address if you do not wish to compete without keeping your team intact, so that we can move forward to others on the wait lists.

Thanks for your overwhelming interest in the event, and for your patience with the process!
