The Event At Rebecca Farm – July 19-23, 2017 (Video)

The Event at Rebecca Farm started with a dedicated crew of local eventers who loved the local venue, Herron Park, but knew that more was possible. The inaugural competition in 2002 put Rebecca Farm on the map. It was a huge success with over 150 competitors. In 2004, The Event became a USEF (United States Equestrian Federation) and USEA (United States Eventing Association) recognized Gold Cup Series and a Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) World Cup eventing competition.

During the first year as a World Cup Qualifier, The Event drew 380 competitors, a 200 rider increase from 2003. By 2009, The Event had well over 500 entries with 421 of those riders competing all four days. 2011 was one of 12 three-star (***) competitions in the U.S. and an important competition for athletes vying to go to the London Olympics in 2012.

Now, The Event runs almost 600 horses over 4 days of competition creating a $4.4 million economic impact to the local area.

International equestrians observe that Rebecca Farm’s unique course—which adorns each jump and obstacle with artistry—stands out among world venues. The beauty of the course has blossomed over the past decade thanks to a dedicated staff, including course builders Bert Wood and Matt Langliers.

U.S. Eventing Association (USEA) President Kevin Baumgardner summed it up when he said, “She is, hands down, the most important person in Eventing in the Western United States and arguably the most important person in Eventing in the entire nation.”

ABOUT REBECCA BROUSSARD

Rebecca Broussard, a visionary in the world of Equestrian Eventing, died on Dec. 24, 2010 after a brave battle with cancer. Friends and family gathered on Christmas to honor her life, while public celebrations of her legacy will be planned at equestrian competitions this summer.

Becky had long talked about her love of helping riders in the West compete on the world stage and her vision included the historic possibilities of bringing riders from Europe to Montana in the future. In 2010 she helped organize an historic flight of 18 horses from the East Coast, including many Olympians, who competed at her namesake Event.

In Becky’s memory, the Broussard family launched The Rebecca Broussard International Developing Rider Grant in 2011, offering an unprecedented $250,000 fund through the United States Eventing Association Endowment Trust that will, over the following five years, offer an annual $50,000 training and competition grant to developing riders who are successfully competing at the advanced level. The grant represents the fulfillment of Becky’s desire to help riders achieve the goal of representing the U.S. in international team competition.

“My mom touched the Eventing careers of so many riders,” said her daughter, Sarah Broussard. “She will truly be missed, but she has left behind a legacy that will live on forever. Not only at The Event at Rebecca Farm, but through all of the lives that she has touched that will keep her and her memory alive.

Baltimore Ravens Offensive Coordinator Coaches Missoula’s Prep Quarterbacks! (Missoulian)

In between quarterbacking drills on Tuesday, former Griz great and current Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg had a challenge for his high school signal callers.

He wanted to see what tricks they could do with the football.

The prep athletes, decked out from head to toe in Adidas-provided camp gear, responded with their rendition. Footballs promptly scattered over the sprint-turf field at Missoula County Public Stadium.

It was a brief break at Mornhinweg’s Camp Marty Quarterback School, where QB’s from Missoula’s Class AA schools and Class B Loyola Sacred Heart worked on the finer points of quarterbacking from a coach who knows a thing or two about being under center.

The masses might know Mornhinweg for his fateful two-year stint as head coach of the Detroit Lions among his otherwise successful 24 years in the NFL as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator.

Montana football fans have even fonder memories.

As a junior in the 1982 season, he helped guide the Grizzlies to the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs and Montana’s only Big Sky Conference title between 1970 and 1993. After the four-year starter graduated, the school record books read “Mornhinweg” next to career passing touchdowns, passing yards, completions, attempts and completion percentage.

It’s no wonder the NFL OC and his wife, Lindsay, love it here, too.
