Educational activities include clinics, seminars and camps that provide opportunities for riders, horses, coaches/trainers, officials, organizers and volunteers to learn, practice and increase their knowledge base within their role in the sport. These educational resources focus foremost on the safety both rider and horse as well as sepctators and other competition participants. The USEA highly encourages both members and non-members to take advantage of these learning opportunities offered in their Area.

Schooling shows can include horse trials, combined tests, derbies and riding tests.

The Intro To Eventing Clinic Series was began in 2008 as a way for riders from all disciplines to get a taste of eventing. An Intro To Eventing Clinic will have a very welcoming atmosphere that will introduce the basic skills of Eventing in a no-pressure environment. The Clinics can be held anywhere in the country where there is a demand. The Clinic Instructor must be an active member of the USEA and willing to have the patience to manage the inexperience of riders participating in their first foray into the eventing world. The venue must be able to provide ample trailer parking and appropriate facilities for both ring-riding and cross-country. Insurance for the day can be purchased through the USEA.
