The USEA Classic Series keeps the spirit of the long format event alive for Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels. For some, riding in a Classic Series event is the highlight of their competitive season and completing a long format event at any level is quite the achievement.

Riders have the chance to experience the rush of endurance day, including roads and tracks, steeplechase, the vet box, and cross-country, as well as participate in formal veterinary inspections and educational activities with experts on the ins and outs of competing in a long-format three-day event. The USEA Classic Series has something for everyone, and those that undertake the preparation for a long format event are in for a lot of hard work, fun rides, and the ultimate educational experience!
