The official organizing body for combined training in the U.S is the USCTA
(United States Combined Training Association). They publish an omnibus
a couple times a year that contains a listing of all sanctioned events
held in the US. This includes virtually ALL of the three-day events
(as these are major events preliminary level and up). Their address is:
292 Bridge St.
South Hamilton, MA 01962-1497
Local bodies also get involved in organizing 3-day events. Washington D.C.,
***ia and Maryland are covered by the Central States Dressage and
Combined Training Association (CSDCTA). You can probably get an address
and phone number for them through the USCTA.
Other places with listings of SOME 3-day events (the above would get you ALL
of them): Horse Show magazine (publication of the AHSA), Horseplay magazine,
and I think Practical Horseman may have some listings.
Your best bet is to give the USCTA a call, or find a friend who is a member
and ask to see his/her omnibus. I would send you the info
myself, but I never have the omnibus here in the office.
