It’s time to meet the teams of the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships! A total of 105 competitors, 15 schools, and 27 teams will be competing at the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships on May 27-30 at Virginia Horse Trials.
In 2019, the Championship had 90 entries and this year there are 105 entries which makes this year the biggest Championship to date. Auburn University is coming back with two full teams to defend their 2019 championship title. The University of Kentucky is bringing the highest number of teams recorded in the history of Championships with over 8 teams, the University of Louisville has doubled their Championship entries from their debut in 2019, almost every school entered is bringing at least two teams, and the new Graduate division will have a variety of schools represented.

This summer, five USEA Emerging Athlete 21 (EA21) Clinics took place across the country giving young riders the opportunity to hone in on their horsemanship skills, improve their consistency in the saddle and show ring, and create a pipeline for potential team riders by identifying and developing young talent. We caught up with many of the riders from the two West Coast sessions to hear their takes on the USEA’s newest program.
It’s about that time of year again when eventers across the country are packing their trunks and making arrangements to new locations for the winter months. While some owners might feel more comfortable transporting their own horses, time and resources make it more expedient for others to load their horses onto someone else’s rig for the potentially long journey to their winter quarters. For the safety and peace of mind of everyone involved – especially the equine passengers – two trusted shippers based on the east coast shared their tips for best practices when preparing horses for long trailer rides.
