United States Combined Training Association

The United States Combined Training Association was the governing body for the sport of combined training, more commonly known as eventing, in the United States of America prior to the formation of the United States Eventing Association. The USCTA was formed in 1959, to promote the sport of eventing throughout the country, from the novice to the advanced level. It set rules to protect the safety of the competitors, both human and equine, and those requiring the humane treatment of the horses. The USCTA was also responsible for organizing clinics and educational opportunities, registering events that met their qualifications, and assisting in training opportunities for the best competitors in the country.
