One of the many benefits of getting involved with the USEA Intercollegiate Program is receiving a discount on an annual USEA membership. A Full Membership with the USEA costs $95 per year, where a Collegiate Membership costs $70. However, the discounted Collegiate Membership can only be applied to undergraduate students who are listed on their official team roster – and the deadline to submit a roster is eight days away!

Team rosters must be sent to the USEA Senior Director of Membership Services Jennifer Hardwick at [email protected] by February 15 of each year. Please list every member on the school’s eventing team.

This policy is strictly related to receiving the USEA Collegiate Membership discount. Collegiate students whose names are submitted after February 15 can still be considered collegiate members and have their names appear on the Intercollegiate leaderboards and participate in Championships.

So, who is qualified to have their name on the roster to receive the discount? Undergraduate students are eligible to maintain a Collegiate Membership and receive the discount for a total of five school years, which may be nonconsecutive. There is no age restriction on eligibility for current undergraduate students. Team coaches are not eligible for the discount unless the coach is also a student that meets the Collegiate Membership criteria.

Graduate students and alumni are not eligible to receive the Collegiate Membership discount, but they are welcome to participate in any of the 2020 Intercollegiate Team Challenges. Graduate students are also encouraged to compete at the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships. The Graduate Championship division will be scored and awarded separately from the Championship for undergraduate students. Graduate participants must represent a school that is affiliated with the USEA.

Please remember that every school has to renew its affiliate membership each year. Click here to renew for 2020!

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, EQuine AMerica Magazine, FITS, World Equestrian Brands, FLAIR and US Equestrian for sponsoring the Intercollegiate Eventing Program.

My Valentine Steals Hearts as the 2021 Pony of the Year

Sidnee Milner and My Valentine did not become partners out of sheer coincidence. The pony and rider combination that took home the 2021 SmartPak USEA Pony of the Year award were a product of the thoughtfulness and generosity of family friend and trainer Tawn Edwards. Milner was, at the time, a young and inexperienced child rider looking for a partner to teach her the ropes of eventing; My Valentine was a well-seasoned eventing pony who knew the job of advancing young riders well and was looking for her next partner. Over their three-year relationship, the duo have accumulated various ribbons and accolades together with 2021 being the most impressive of their seasons thus far.
