U.S. Athletes (U.S. citizens) wishing to compete in international competitions must receive permission from USEF. Please see the Additional Resources section below for information on competing abroad. 

Applications to compete abroad as an Individual (not on a U.S. Team) are completed through Athlete Services

Which application should I submit?  In the online Athlete Dashboard, riders have access to two options: Online Applications and FEI Entry. It is important to complete the correct Application in order to able to compete.

  • Online ApplicationsRequired for selection to a Team. The Online Applications section allows athletes to apply for selection to a CCIO at which the U.S. will field a Team. This process is managed by USEF Eventing, and information about upcoming Team Events is available above. The USEF Eventing Department will complete FEI entries for selected athletes, so those only interested in Team selection should not also complete the FEI Entry. 
  • FEI Entry: Required to compete as an Individual. Atheletes must submit the FEI Entry in order to be entered into the FEI Entry System to compete as an individual at any FEI competition or CCIO, whether in the U.S. or abroad. The FEI Entry process in managed by US Equestrian Athlete Services.
