USEF and AQHA to Promote Collegiate Competition with Introduction of Varsity Equestrian Website

US Equestrian Federation


Lexington, KY – Universities and colleges that compete in Division I and Division II NCAA equestrian sports throughout the United States now have the added resources of a newly launched website. The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) join in support of the efforts of www.varsityequestrian.com, the official site of Varsity Equestrian sports. Designed to enhance the knowledge and awareness of equestrian competition at the university level and beyond, the site will also serve as information headquarters for Varsity Equestrian sports and will help establish a consistent brand image for the sport while providing useful information to athletes, parents, coaches, administrators and athletic directors.

“One of the reasons equestrian sport continues to grow in this country is the increased participation of juniors and young adults,” says John Long, Chief Executive Officer of the USEF. “The growing number of varsity programs is important in coaching these young people who are the trainers, riders and owners of the future. This website is a welcome resource for those interested in pursuing their love of horses at the university level.”

“AQHA always supports the involvement of young people with horses,” adds AQHA Executive Vice President Bill Brewer. “The NCAA Varsity Equestrian program is a great partner in our efforts to provide equine activities to people of all ages and backgrounds.”

The following institutions offer Varsity Equestrian and are eligible to compete at this year’s Varsity Equestrian National Championships to take place April 15-16 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
