The Gladstone Equestrian Association is a New Jersey nonprofit organization, which was founded in 1985 to promote equestrian sports, particularly the sport of combined driving in the United States. Located on the grounds of the Hamilton Farm Golf and Equestrian Center and the USET Headquarters in Gladstone, New Jersey, the GEA annually hosts driving competitions.
In 1993, the GEA hosted the World Pairs Driving Championship, named World's Best Driving Event by L'Annee Hippique, the international yearbook of equestrian sports. The GEA regularly sponsors clinics on driving, course design, equine health, and endurance training to educate others on the diversity of horse sports. The GEA also provides support for other organizations committed to bringing America to the top of the international arena, including the USET, USA Equestrian, and the FEI.
