Not sure what college or university to attend after high school graduation? Come to the Maryland 5 Star on Saturday morning, October 16 to find out more about the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program.

This event will be held exclusively for Collegiate members and IEL members. It’s a win/win for both - Collegiate members can recruit the next round of teammates, and IEL members can choose which college or university suits them best.

Tables will be provided for all Intercollegiate Eventing teams that are interested in participating. Teams are encouraged to set up their own team décor, promo materials, and anything else they’d like to include for the mixer.
