The University of Alabama Eventing Team was founded in September of 2013 with the intent to accept everyone who wanted to be a part of a horse-oriented team on a very non-horsey campus. All it takes to be a part of our tight-knit team is dues, with a discount if you are not able to ride for our team. We currently have members from all over, riding at levels anywhere from Starter through Preliminary, and a few of these members did not come from an eventing background.

For Randolph-Macon College, having an eventing team was simply a no-brainer.  Located just north of Richmond, Virginia, the college is nestled in a charming town surrounded by horse country and ideally located in the heart of Area II.  The team barn is less than 2.5 miles from campus, making balancing a busy course load and keeping your horse competition ready a reality.

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.

Although the land-grant, public university has always had strong agriculture, animal science, and veterinary programs, Iowa State University is now home to its first organized eventing team. As one of the newest teams to affiliate with the USEA, the ISU Eventing Team was organized in the summer and fall of 2016 and is an officially recognized student organization on campus.

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.
