Just a week ago today college almost 90 college students representing 12 different universities gathered at Chattahoochee Hills in Fairburn, Georgia for the 2022 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships. The weekend was full of spirit, glitter paint, fierce competition, and camaraderie. While schools were competing against one another, you could often find "arch rivals" cheering for one another as rider after rider crossed the finish flags on cross-country. Take a trip back in time as we revisit some of our favorite memories through the lens from this year's Intercollegiate showdown.

I’m not one for the spotlight. As the voice of the Association, you don’t need to know my personal views, political, eventing, or otherwise. So despite my byline appearing on thousands of articles on the USEA website and magazine, this is probably only the second time I’m writing about myself (the first was about my love for lessons, and reading it now makes me laugh as I am still 100% addicted). But as I am now just a USEA member I thought I would share a bit of my journey to add to our member spotlight series, Now on Course.
You’ve likely spent some time scouring the USEA Calendar to line up your 2022 competition schedule. Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to plan some cross-country schooling outings to make sure you and your horse are as ready as possible. If you own or manage a facility that welcomes guests for haul-in schooling, you’ve likely noticed horses and their humans showing up in droves to get their practice in. A successful off-site schooling day has many, many moving parts. From paperwork and payment to safety, these best practices for hosts and guests will help everything go as smoothly as possible.
