The 2023 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship at Tryon International Equestrian Center is just a few days away, which means it is time to meet the teams! A total of 93 competitors, 13 schools, and 25 teams will be competing at the 2023 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship on Friday, May 26 through Sunday, May 28.
Auburn University will be on the hunt to defend their 2022 Championship title with three carefully selected teams covering 10 entries. The University of Kentucky will once again field eight teams with 28 entries, while the University of Georgia isn’t fair behind in size with 5 teams including 18 entries. Transylvania University, James Madison University, Randolph-Macon College and University of Louisville will return after missing the 2022 Championship, while Baylor University and University of Tennessee – Knoxville will be making their Championship debuts.
