MVEA is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization dedicated to promoting the equestrian sport of Eventing in the Miami Valley.
Membership and participation in the MVEA helps to maintain green space and provide opportunities for equestrian activities at our local venues. We host several events throughout the year including schooling shows, clinics, and a year end awards banquet. Our events are open to the public, as we aim to generate interest and a sense of camaraderie in our community. MVEA members receive discounted rates for participation in our events, and can be eligible for year end awards and scholarships.
Invite your family and friends to experience the joy of equestrianism! Volunteering is always appreciated, and horse experience is not required to participate. Please explore this website to learn about what MVEA has to offer, and don't hesitate to reach out and get involved!
We continue to work with Greene County on improving and maintaining Twin Towers Horse Park in Fairborn, Ohio. This ongoing project includes upgrading existing structures, jumps, and footing in all areas of the park accessible to horses. Our goal is to ensure this wonderful venue can be utilized to its full potential for years to come. You can learn more about Twin Towers Park by clicking the link below for the website.
How You Can Help
MVEA utilizes donations from private individuals, businesses and organizations to help forward our mission of preserving green spaces and promoting equestrian sport.
All donations are tax deductible and we are happy to feature our donors on the web and at our events.
Volunteer with MVEA
MVEA is so appreciative of our lovely volunteers, and we are always open to the support of enthusiastic individuals to serve on our committees, help put on events, and reach out to the community. Volunteers can log their hours to cash in for select cross-country schooling days and year end awards.
Cross Country Jump Fund & Jayne's Jump Field
Our Cross Country Committee continues to work with licensed Course Designer Cathy Wieschhoff on developing plans for the park with the Miami Valley equestrian community in mind. Great strides have been made already, several new jumps have been built and installed, and new water and bank complexes were constructed!
In memory of Jayne Whitton, a valued member of our community, MVEA has designated a portion of the jump field at Twin Towers as Jayne's Jump Field. We aim to raise $5,000 towards new jumps for this area that will be utilized for schooling and competitions. Learn more about this endeavor at the link below.
Donations to the MVEA General Fund are utilized along with the membership fees toward operating expenses such as member packets and other official needs as designated by the MVEA Board.
Miami Valley Horse Trials
In 2021, through the extensive effort of MVEA and the local equestrian community, we are able to reintroduce a USEA recognized Horse Trials at Twin Towers!
We've listened to your desires and concerns and made some important changes to our recognized events. We look forward to hosting USEA events for several years to come.
Do you wish you could compete, but can't make it to the show? Now you can donate an entry!
