In 2017, the Omaha Equestrian Foundation (the “OEF”) launched the inaugural Init2Winit Speed Jumping Series that will culminate in the $100,000 RFD-TV Init2Winit Championship at the 2018 International Omaha, on April 13, 2018.  This Series was designed to grow participation in the central part of the country, particularly during the fall and winter.  The experiment has proven successful thus far and the OEF is seeking applications for partnering events interested in hosting a qualifying competition for the 2018-2019 season.  While it may seem early to do so, the USEF must approve the series, including qualifying locations, in May of 2018, thus the timing outlined below.

January 26, 2018          Qualifier Application Available

March 1, 2018              Qualifier Applications Due

March 30, 2018            Qualifying Events Announced

April 20, 2018              Series Application Submitted to the USEF.

May 18, 2018               Qualifying Event Contracts Completed

All applications must be received at the OEF office by 5:00 on March 1, 2018 either hand delivered or emailed in one complete PDF document.  Applications sent by mail must be postmarked by March 1, 2018. You are welcome to provide supporting materials, but please provide everything in one complete electronic file or hard copy. If you choose to mail your application, please call or email our offices so we know to expect it in case it gets lost.

Many of the questions in the application may ask you about things that you do not currently do at your event.  This is fine, so be honest about what you do currently and what you would like to do in the future.  This Series is about growing the sport in our region and growing the events is a big piece of that vision.

If you have any questions in the process of preparing this application, please contact Kristen Buell at the contact information listed below.
