The USET Foundation is the philanthropic partner of US Equestrian and supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing International High Performance horses and athletes.

High Performance programs are developed in the eight international equestrian disciplines of dressage, eventing, jumping, driving, endurance, reining, para equestrian and vaulting. These programs train and support top athletes and horses to compete at the Olympics, World Championships, Pan American Games, and other top international competitions.

The extraordinary growth of American equestrian sport positions us on the threshold of new and even greater accomplishments.

The USET Mission

The United States Equestrian Team Foundation mission is to provide the necessary resources to make equestrian competitive excellence possible, now and in the future. The Foundation supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s Elite and developing International High Performance athletes and horses in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation. The Foundation is funded through tax-deductible contributions and does not receive any direct or indirect government subsidy. Read more…

How We Measure Success

Across the spectrum, U.S. Equestrian hopes to identify the very best horses, athletes and ultimately athlete/horse combinations within each discipline. Having the U.S. teams on the international stage in itself is not the priority or the goal of the High Performance Programs. The goal of the U.S. Equestrian Team and the High Performance Programs is to bring home medals and be at the top of the sport in each discipline.  In line with the new strategic plan, the programs will use the success from medals won internationally to benefit the entire equestrian community in the United States and continue to grow its base.
