As previously announced, the United States Eventing Association’s (USEA) Professional Horseman’s Council (PHC) will be hosting The Event College at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event again this year. The Event College is a special event designed to educate the general public on the sport of Eventing, and will take place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during the competition.
This year’s Event College “professors” include the following top event riders and professionals: Allison Springer, Sinead Halpin, Hawley Bennett-Awad, Jennifer McFall, Cathy Wieschhoff, Hannah Sue Burnett, Max Corcoran and Karen O’Connor. There will also be two autograph signings held at the USEA booth on Friday. Five-time Olympian Karen O’Connor will be signing her book, Life in the Galloping Lane, during Friday’s lunch break, and 2014 USEA Lady Rider of the Year Lauren Kieffer will be signing posters at the USEA booth, immediately following her dressage ride.
A tentative schedule for The Event College can be viewed here, but please make sure to note that times and locations are subject to change. The schedule will be finalized after the veterinary inspection on Wednesday, and hard copies of the final schedules will be available at the USEA booth at Rolex, starting Thursday morning at 9:00 AM.

About The Event College
The Event College was created by the USEA and the Professional Horseman’s Council to generate awareness of the sport of Eventing. The College aims to educate spectators, interested parties and the general public on the goals and function of each phase (dressage, cross-country and show jumping) and the complexity and value of the sport. High profile Eventing experts will act as “professors” and host casual, interactive dialogue with “students” of The Event College. Anyone interested in the sport of Eventing can be a student, and the opportunity is free of charge.
