The University of South Carolina (USCA) has decided to grab the reins and add another Eventing Club in the Southeast region at their main campus in Columbia, Sc. Riders at USC acknowledged the importance of riding programs for future and current students. The creation of this new program was designed to help students to both continue learning in the classroom and in the ring. USC eventers are eager to continually grow into community where students are able to foster relationships on the basis of their love for horses and the sport of eventing.

With the recent creation of the Eventing Club at Texas Christian University (TCU), its members are excited to begin their endeavors as a team in the upcoming fall show season, here in the heart of Area V. The club originated with the realization that many young eventers viewed college as the end of their eventing careers. They understood that if it was not a university-approved sport then there would be no recognition and understanding that the eventing students were student athletes who were trying to balance their academics with riding.
