FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
The FSU Eventing Team is part of the USEA Collegiate Program and participates in the Collegiate Challenges. Collegiate Eventing is brand new to the USA and we are very excited to be a part of it. Established in the Spring of 2015, the FSU Eventing Team began with one rider and one coach. We are currently actively recruiting for new members to represent the Seminoles at the Collegiate Challenge Horse Shows. Not only does the FSU Eventing Team compete at the USEA Collegiate Challenge shows, they also compete at local and regional shows to prepare for the USEA shows. We are our own club within the Club Sports department of Florida State.
Eventing is an International Sport as well as an Olympic Sport. The collegiate level is prime recruiting grounds for future Olympic Teams, World Equestrian Games Teams as well as PanAmerican Game teams. There are many many opportunities given to riders at this level and the Collegiate Program is a great way to get these college riders the exposure they need to excel in the sport.
