Entries for the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship will open April 11 and close on May 9. All Intercollegiate Teams are welcome and encouraged to enter to compete at the 2023 Championship. There are no qualifications necessary to enter, but schools represented must be registered Affiliates of the USEA.
All participants must be enrolled as undergraduate students or be no more than 6 months past the completion of their undergraduate education, allowing December graduates to compete in the May championship. The USEA will no longer offer the Graduate division at the Intercollegiate Championship, due to lack of participation in recent years.

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 this year’s USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships Sponsors: Bates Saddles, FITS, Horse & Country, Kerrits, U.S. Equestrian, and World Equestrian Brands.
