Established in the spring of 2015, the FSU Eventing Team began with one rider and one coach. Since then we have been working hard to grow our team. This past year many of our members graduated, but we are very excited for fall 2018 because we have a string of talented riders coming our way. Our current and future members come from a wide range of riding backgrounds and levels. We welcome everyone, whether they are ready to compete as eventers or just want to learn more about the equestrian world.

My name is Lexie Thacker, president and founder of the Cal Poly Eventing Team. When I first came to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly, I ended up boarding with several eventers who shared my passion for the sport. Back in 2014, we were inspired to start our own eventing team at Cal Poly with the implementation of the Intercollegiate Eventing Program by the USEA. However, due to logistic complications, we were unable to form until the start of 2018. We are now proud to have officially started our team with a fantastic group of hard-working and dedicated riders.

Last year, the team was ecstatic about winning the 2017 Spirit Award and having one of their two teams finish fifth.

After hugs and photos (lots of photos!) we parted ways at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, Virginia with renewed confidence and enthusiasm. We had just won the 2017 USEA Intercollegiate Championships! Busy summers lay ahead for all of us – college internships, a study abroad in Spain, first days of professional careers, home state competitions, a Bromont entry and even an AEC registration. Our riders worked hard and competed plenty over the next three months.

The Auburn University Eventing Team has developed into a force to be reckoned with over the past couple of years, and they are full steam ahead in their preparations for the 2018 USEA Intercollegiate Championship. Founded in 2013 as one of the first teams to be recognized with the USEA, the team has grown steadily and has quickly made a name for itself at Intercollegiate Team Challenges in Area III - notably winning both the 2017 March Poplar Place Team Challenge and the 2017 October Chattahoochee Hills Team Challenge.

The school is situated in downtown Lexington, minutes from the Kentucky Horse Park and a 25-30 minute drive to Three Day Farm, the home base for Transy’s eventing team in the rolling blue hills of Midway, Kentucky.

Eventing at Virginia Tech was founded by a small group of ambitious students in 2015, hopeful to bring eventing into the already-established equestrian world at Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech is most well-known for its close-knit campus and making everyone feel a part of the Hokie community. We strive to create a loving team atmosphere and work to help each other in riding and balancing school responsibilities. Our greatest strength lies in the support system of team members, whether we compete or just want to be around other horse-loving people.
