The University of Findlay Eventing team members compete in four United States Eventing Association (USEA) recognized shows in Area 8. Our students compete as an intercollegiate team and also as individuals against other eventers in the country. Students may qualify to compete at National Championships.
Starting in 2014, the USEA approved the creation of intercollegiate teams. This program was created for collegiate eventers to participate in USEA events both as a university team and as individuals. The University of Findlay is one of the first schools to participate in this newly formed intercollegiate program.
It is not necessary to be an equestrian major to participate on the team. Many riders major in a variety of other degrees and compete on the team.
For more information about Eventing, visit the United States Eventing Association website.
Tryouts are held in early September and membership is limited to the serious equestrian. You will need riding attire and an ASTM approved helmet to try out. You will try out on one of the university's school horses and will be assigned to an appropriate competition level.
In order to compete, approved show clothes are required.
It is beneficial to bring your own tack. Students may rent a tack locker (if available) for $60 a semester to store equipment.
Cost and Expenses
The Eventing team is supported by UF, fundraising efforts and a combined training schooling show at The James L. Child Jr. Equestrian Complex.
Riders can use university eventing horses or their own upon approval.
