By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program has quickly been gaining popularity across the nation. In 2019, the participation in intercollegiate team challenges was the highest it has been. This year, the calendar has over 23 intercollegiate team challenges across the country.

Any school can participate as there are no requirements to compete in a team challenge. There are only two requirements to compete in the 2020 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships. First, the student must be registered as a USEA collegiate member, and second, the school must be an affiliate of the USEA.

A new intercollegiate team challenge has been added to the 2020 calendar at Fresno County Horse Park on April 17-19, 2020 which will serve as a pilot year for a future USEA West Coast Intercollegiate Eventing Championship. Advised by the USEA Board of Governors, this team challenge must have at least six colleges/universities participate for a 2021 USEA West Coast Intercollegiate Eventing Championship to be considered.

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 Bates Saddles, FITS, RideSafe, World Equestrian Brands, FLAIR and US Equestrian for sponsoring the Intercollegiate Eventing Program.
