How to Enter a United States Eventing Association (USEA) Event
Once you’ve chosen an event, please be alert to when it’s time to send in your entry!
- Opening date: The Tuesday six weeks before the competition. This is the earliest you can send in your entry.
- Closing date: The Tuesday four weeks after opening day. This is the final day you can enter the event (two weeks before the event date).
To enter online, create a USEA Online Services Account at services.useventing.com (click “New User”) if you don’t have one already. Creating an account is free! Then you’ll have access to Xentry, “Express Entry,” the online entry system. (With the exception of competing at the Introductory level, competitors are required to become a USEA member to compete.)
Once you’ve created an account and logged in, you’ll click on Xentry at the top of the screen to see a list of shows open for entry. California is in the USEA’s Area VI, so select that at the top of the list and click “refresh list.” You will then see shows open for entry.
