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!
It’s going to be a good year for the USEA Intercollegiate Program - click here to find out about the exciting update on the West Coast.
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.
The USEA Classic Series is going strong thanks to the hard work and enthusiasm of event organizers who are committed to the thrill of long-format eventing. Dr. Christel Carlson, M.D. is one of the biggest champions of the program. A former competitor, she continues to contribute countless hours to the USEA as an organizer, judge (R), volunteer, and member of multiple committees. She is the owner of Spokane Sport Horse Farm in Spokane, Washington, which hosts two USEA recognized events each year. The facility’s fall event, which closes out the season in Area VII, includes Classic Three-Day divisions at the Beginner Novice, Novice and Training levels.
It was a weekend to remember for eventers from 13 colleges as they convened at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina, from May 26-28 for the 2023 USEA Intercollegiate Championship. The 23 teams gave their all and had tons of fun!
The 2023 Woodside Spring H.T. served as a celebration of the successes of the West Coast eventers that competed in the Kentucky Three-Day Event, as well as what’s in store for the future of the sport in California. On the eve of competition on Thursday, organizers at the Woodside Horse Trials held a party in honor of both Tamie Smith’s historic win in the Kentucky five-star and the team of cross country builders led by Bert Wood that unveiled new courses at The Horse Park. Derek di Grazia designed the new Advanced and Intermediate tracks, with Wood designing the new tracks for Preliminary through Starter.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to offer the USEA Adult Team Championships (ATC) at the upcoming USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), presented by Nutrena Feeds. The Adult Team Championships will be offered once again at the Beginner Novice, Novice, Training, and Preliminary levels for members of the USEA Adult Rider Program, and newly added this year, the Modified level will be included in the ATC as well.
