The USET establishes a full-time, year-round training facility in Gladstone, New Jersey thanks to the generosity of the James Cox Brady family. The leased property provides for stabling and housing for horses and riders as they train in the three disciplines of Jumping, Eventing and Dressage. De Nèmethy, the Jumping coach, is joined by Stefan von Visy, who coaches Eventers and part-time Dressage coach Bengt Ljungquist. Read more at Historical Hamilton Farm.
Captain Bertalan de Nèmethy is hired as full-time Jumping coach.
