The USEA Adult Team Challenges have been generously sponsored by the Chronicle of the Horse for more than 20 years. The Challenges have given adult riders not competing at the highest levels of the sport to compete in a friendly team competition. In previous years the Challenges were held annually in different locations (Eastern, Central and Western) around the United States. For Adult Riders that have participated in the events, they have always been an exciting way to team up with fellow adult riders in your Area to compete. In an effort to re-energize the program, the membership of the USEA have voted to change the overall model of the program. Starting in 2014 every area was encouraged to hold Adult Team Challenges to offer adult riders the opportunity to compete in team competitions leading up to the USEA Adult Team Championships held at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships. As a result, no longer were Adult Team Challenges be isolated to the three challenges around the country, instead there may be as many as 10 opportunities to compete in an Area Team competition, with a finale occurring at the Adult Team Championship!
The 2018 Area VII Adult Team Challenge will be hosted by Inavale Farm
National ATC will be incorporated into the AEC - 2018 at Colorado Horse Park. Adult Rider members qualified for Amateur or Rider divisions can also sign up for the team championships. Contact Maggie Rikard - Adult Rider Coordinator for more info.
