About the USEA Event College

The USEA Event College was created by the Professional Horseman’s Council and the USEA to generate awareness of the sport of eventing. The USEA Virtual Event College is a special online series that aims to educate competitors, spectators, and the general public about all aspects of eventing, from the complexity and value of the sport to horsemanship and the different skill needed to be involved in eventing. High-profile eventing experts act as “professors” and anyone interested in the sport of eventing can be a student. The best part? “Tuition” is free!

While the exercises and jumps got progressively harder throughout the day, the warm-ups and themes stayed the same.

The USEA Educational Symposium is a unique opportunity each winter for eventers to gather together to soak in knowledge. The first two days of the 2020 Symposium focus on the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) with attendees learning how to be better, more effective instructors.
