Since its formation in 2012, the University of Georgia (UGA) Eventing Team has experienced overwhelming success. The UGA Eventing Team has won seven of the nine collegiate challenges we have participated in and received more top individual college rider ribbons than any other team. The 2015 USEA Intercollegiate Leaderboards featured numerous UGA Eventers at all levels. With all of these achievements in such little time, the UGA Eventing Team attracts riders from all over the country.

The team is based out of Poplar Place Farm in Hamilton, Ga. Sitting on 350 acres, Poplar Place Farm is the perfect location for training. The farm features both large and small dressage rings, competition caliber show jumping courses and a full cross-country course with obstacles ranging from pre-amoeba through the advanced level.

Any rider knows that training and competing takes up a huge part of their daily routine, but what happens when college interrupts that? The riders on the Auburn University Eventing Team are here to explain. The club was started in 2013 and was the 6th university to affiliate their Eventing team with the USEA. This year they have 30 active members, 7 of whom were on the USEA 2015 leaderboard. Don’t let their good grades and dressage scores fool you, all this traveling and competing takes a huge amount of time management and teamwork.

This semester was an extremely successful one for the Clemson Eventing Team. We rode with amazing clinicians, competed in an Intercollegiate Team Challenge and hosted our own schooling show! The semester began with the team’s Fall dressage clinic with Jodi Lees. She is an “R” rated judge based out of Tryon, S.C. who also judges many Horse Trials throughout the southeast. The girls on the team absolutely loved Jodi’s style of teaching and everyone finished their lessons feeling accomplished. The team hopes to have her back for a clinic this spring.

Last weekend college students from across the southeast went head-to-head for another intercollegiate challenge title. This challenge was hosted by Poplar Place Farm in Hamilton, Ga. November 7-8th. The scholastic eventers toughed it out through ‘hell and high water’, literally, as rainfall in the days before and throughout the weekend was unrelenting. This was Poplar Place Farm’s first time hosting a team challenge because of the cancellation of the Chattahoochee Hills October H.T., the usual collegiate challenge host venue.
