The Event College is in session at the FEI World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018 (WEG)! Boyd Martin's mount at the 2018 WEG, Tsetserleg: Tim Holekamp bred the horse. Christine Turner owns the horse. The two of them started the USEA Holekamp/Turner Grant for young horses, and their joint project Tsetserleg grew up through the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) program and is now competing for Team USA at the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG). The message that both Holekamp and Turner want everyone to know: If they can do it, anyone can do it!
About the USEA Event College
The USEA Event College was created by the USEA and the Professional Horseman’s Council to generate awareness of the sport of eventing. The Event College aims to educate spectators, interested parties, and the general public about the goals and function of each phase (dressage, cross-country, and show jumping) and the complexity and value of the sport. The Event College also aims to educate young riders, adult amateurs, and all those interested in the sport on horsemanship and different skill sets needed to be involved with eventing. High-profile eventing experts will act as “professors” and host casual, interactive dialogue with “students” of the Event College. The Virtual Event College is a special online series designed to educate competitors as well as the general public about the sport of eventing. Get hands-on information about grooming, learn the best way to walk cross-country, and understand the some of the best options for caring for your horse’s health, all from the best professionals in the country! Anyone interested in the sport of eventing can be a student, and “tuition” is free! Click here to check out the full syllabus of Event College videos.
