The USEA is pleased to announce that the 2022 Intercollegiate Team Challenge calendar is now available! The USEA is thrilled to have 24 intercollegiate team challenges on the calendar in addition to the 2022 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, which will take place on May 21-22 at Chattahoochee Hills H.T. in Fairburn, Georgia.

Intercollegiate team challenges are a fun and flexible way to compete as a team and show off your school spirit. Any school can participate as there are no requirements to compete in a team challenge. But there are two requirements to compete in the 2022 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships. First, the student must be registered as a USEA Collegiate Member and listed on the official team roster. Secondly, the school must be a current affiliate of the USEA. Every school must renew its affiliate registration with the USEA for 2022. Click here to renew.

Start planning your season now with the list of intercollegiate team challenges below. Keep in mind that this list may be subject to change. Please continue to check here for any updates throughout the year.

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. Click here to learn more about the Intercollegiate Eventing Program.

The USEA would like to thank Bates Saddles, EQuine AMerica Magazine, FITS, Kerrits, RevitaVet, R&J Equine, USEF, World Equestrian Brands, and Saratoga Horseworks for sponsoring the Intercollegiate Eventing Program.
