With the ringing in of 2017, The University of Florida’s Eventing Team is halfway through its inaugural first year. The idea of bringing an eventing team to the University of Florida (UF) was first kicked around at the end of the fall semester in 2015. With the rise of collegiate eventing, adding a team at UF made sense. There is a very strong pre-veterinary and equine program and the university is forty minutes from Ocala, Florida, one of the country’s eventing Meccas.

The USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program was created in 2014, and has since taken off with over forty schools affiliated and more than 100 members registered as collegiate riders. One of the biggest milestones of the program was the introduction of the Intercollegiate Leaderboard in 2016. This let college riders earn points at competitions around the country which reflected in their year-end status on the leaderboard. It worked much in the way that the amateur and junior leaderboards worked, and there was an Intercollegiate listing for each level.

When the average person thinks of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, a small town right off of route 15, they might think of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, and Gettysburg College.  However, if you’re an eventer, you might think of the location as Area II and home of the newly formed Gettysburg Eventing Team. Team member Ella Groner.

Ann Arbor, MI, home of the University of Michigan, is often thought of as the quintessential “college town,” boasting the largest football stadium in the United States, strikingly beautiful academic buildings almost two centuries old, and a vibrant, student-oriented culture.To eventers in Michigan, though, Ann Arbor is also eventing country: within 20 minutes of campus are two USEA venues with courses through the Preliminary level, a handful of boarding facilities, and half a dozen shows sanctioned by The Eventing Association of Michigan.
