Mascots, miniature horses, and more - the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships are back this year! The 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships will take place on May 27-30 at the Virginia Horse Trials in Lexington, Virginia.

The Championships offers Beginner Novice through Intermediate levels and CCI*-L, CCI2*-S, CCI2*-L, and CCI3*-S levels. The event will follow the USEF COVID-19 Action Plan.

There are no qualifications necessary to compete in these Championships, but there are two requirements. First, for the regular Championship, the student must be registered as a USEA Collegiate Member and enrolled as an undergraduate student. Please note that students may compete in the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships up to six months after graduating, allowing December graduates to compete in the May Championships. Second, the school must be an Affiliate of the USEA. Every school has to renew each year, click here to renew for 2021.

The USEA will offer a Graduate division at Championships this year, allowing graduate students to compete in their own division separate from the Championship for undergraduate students. In addition to graduate students, the 2020 seniors who lost the chance to compete in the 2020 Championships will be allowed to compete in the graduate division as well. The Championship for graduate students will be scored and awarded separately from the Championship for undergraduate students. Graduate division competitors must represent a school that is affiliated with the USEA.

To make this year’s Championships memorable, the USEA will be awarding a commemorative Senior gift to every 2020 Senior student competing at the Championships.

Will a new school come and claim the Championship title? Or will Auburn University make history and win for the third time? It’s anyone’s game come May 27!

About the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program

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, FITS, FLAIR, World Equestrian Brands, EQuine AMerica Magazine, and US Equestrian for sponsoring the Intercollegiate Eventing Program.
