Though there are no official requirements for scoring individual Intercollegiate Team Challenges, the USEA would like to encourage all hosting venues to use the following guidelines that are used at the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships.
At Team Challenges and at the Team Championships, each rider’s score is multiplied by a coefficient appropriate for their level to account for differences in level difficulty and then the individual scores are added together to determine the team score. Teams may be made up of three or four riders at different levels. Only the best three individual scores will count towards the team score, so teams of four will have one “drop” score.
The coefficient system is as follows:
If Modified is offered, a coefficient of 0.95 will apply to Training level and 0.9 will apply to Modified.
