The United States Eventing Association (USEA) will be hosting the Emerging Athletes 21 (EA21) program which will consist of three regional clinics in the summer, leading to a national camp in the winter. The regional clinics (east, central, west) will be open to USEA Young Rider program members aged 21 and under, and then selections will be made from the regional clinics and Young Riders will be chosen to attend the national camp the following winter.

When Auburn University’s Alayna Backel jumped the final jump on her cross-country course today you couldn’t even hear the announcer over the mob of Auburn students, fans, and family members standing at the finish flags. As the last member of the Auburn War Eagles team to compete at the 2022 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, Backel’s double-clear cross-country round with Amy Dobbins’ 17-year-old Halflinger gelding Oliver Twist (Aurora x Ludora de Las Perlas) solidified Auburn’s first victory at the Intercollegiate Championships in three years on a cumulative team score of 79.23.
It has been three years since Auburn University has clinched the title of USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Champions, but the team aimed to rectify that at the 2022 Championships by sending six teams to compete, one of which, the Auburn War Eagles, sits in the pole position following the first day of competition.
