Through the Lens: 2018 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship

That smile! USEA/Jessica Duffy Photo.

Last weekend, a total of 23 teams and over 85 riders representing 18 schools competed for the title of Intercollegiate Champions at the Virginia Horse Trials in Lexington, Virginia. Ultimately, it was Team Auburn Orange from Auburn University that came out on top and took home the Championship title. Every school, from those represented by just a single rider to those with three teams competing at the Championship, put on an impressive show of school spirit and camaraderie, and the USEA was there to capture it all through the lens.
