Continuing Education Department

The US Equestrian Federation Education Department for Licensed Officials works to create engaging and interactive learning experiences to help prepare our licensed officials for the ever-changing world of equestrian sports. From tele-conferenced webinars to large in-person clinics featuring remote video presentations and hands-on measurement sessions, the Education Department continues to adapt and integrate new technologies and scholastic techniques to keep our continuing education clinics stimulating and appealing.

Clinic Schedule

On our Upcoming Clinic Schedule, you can search by breed/discipline for available courses either provided by the USEF directly or through one of the asociated affiliate groups. Dates, locations and even links to these clinics are available on the calendar for ease of access.

Education Materials Library

Even if you do not need to attend a continuing education course this year, our Education Materials Library is a repository of helpful presentations and publications on a wide variety of equine sport subjects. From point of emphasis reviews on judging a particular breed to in-depth presentations on the duties of Stewards and Technical Delegates, the Education Materials Library is a great place to begin to search for new information of to come back to appraise a particular breed/discipline before working at a competition.
