Host An Event
Though there are a few big international events throughout the season, the majority of competitions are locally created and cultivated. Do you see a need for an event where you live? Why not start your own!
Eventing is heavily reliant on open land, a resource that shrinks every year. If you have a piece of land suitable for eventing, reach out to your local area officers to discuss the possibility of holding your own event.
Each event needs an Event Organizer, a complex position that involves overseeing and coordinating all competitors, volunteers, officials, judges, course designers, and more! There is no licensing requirement to be an Organizer, but it requires a very dedicated and detail-oriented person. The best way to learn what it takes is to volunteer with your local event’s Organizer. You can also check out the Event Organizer’s Guide for a detailed look at what’s required.
Every event also requires a panel of licensed officials. Licensed by the USEF, officials are key to ensuring each event stands up to national and/or international standards as set forward by the USEF/FEI. Judges, Technical Delegates and Course Designers are all officials needed for any event.
