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!
