The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce that the Intercollegiate Eventing Championship will be hosted at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, North Carolina, on May 26–28, 2023. The organizers at TIEC look forward to welcoming the Intercollegiate Teams to their state-of-the-art venue this spring for a successful championship event.

Entries for the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship will open April 11 and close on May 9. All Intercollegiate Teams are welcome and encouraged to enter to compete at the 2023 Championship. There are no qualifications necessary to enter, but schools represented must be registered Affiliates of the USEA.

All participants must be enrolled as undergraduate students or be no more than six months past the completion of their undergraduate education, allowing December graduates to compete in the May championship. The USEA will no longer offer the Graduate division at the Intercollegiate Championship due to lack of participation in recent years.

TIEC offers an expansive selection of on-site accommodations, which can be viewed and booked here. For further information on the venue, local accommodations, travel and things to do, view TIEC’s Visitor’s Guide here. Any remaining questions regarding the 2023 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship can be directed to USEA Staff Liaison, Kaleigh Collett, via email at [email protected] or by phone at (703) 669-9994.

The USEA thanks all of the supporters and participants of the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program for their dedication and patience as the 2023 championship location was determined. The Association looks forward to celebrating another fantastic year of collegiate competition at Tryon International Equestrian Center on May 26–28!

About the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program

The USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program was established in 2014 to provide a framework within which eventing teams and individual competitors could flourish at universities and colleges across the country. The USEA offers a discount of $25 on annual USEA memberships for current students of universities and colleges registered as Affiliates with the USEA. Many events across the country now offer Intercollegiate Team Challenges where collegiate eventers can compete individually as well as on teams with their fellow students. In Intercollegiate Team Challenges, 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.

The USEA would like to thank this year's USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship Sponsors: Bates Saddles, FITS, Horse & Country, Kerrits, U.S. Equestrian, and World Equestrian Brands.
