The search for the right college is often considered one of the most exciting and potentially overwhelming times for young adults. With all of the information available and factors to consider, it can be difficult for a student to narrow the search to schools that fit best, especially for young equestrians. Between academic courses and equestrian opportunities, the idea that you may not have come across your "perfect" school is a constant concern. The United States Equestrian Federation has created the USEF Equestrian College Search to help guide students in making an informed decision about their future education.
The Search is an online tool designed to help apprise students of the various opportunities available when looking for equestrian programs or teams at the college level. The Search will ask students questions about what they are looking for in a school – everything from population of the student body, school location, academic interests, and equestrian endeavors. As each question is answered, the Search matches the criteria to qualifying schools. Students will then be able to view a profile page of each institution that matches their goals. At any time, students can click on the link to view results and see the list of institutions matching their criteria.
While using the USEF Equestrian College Search, please keep in mind each question answered will filter additional colleges out of your results listing. This changing number of schools that match your criteria can be seen in the number listed at the top of each page. As more questions are answered, fewer schools will appear in your final result. Answer questions pertaining to the factors most important to you in choosing a college first and view your results for a broader listing. Answering "No Preference" will not affect the colleges appearing in your results. Students can answer all of the questions, just one question or any combination but should remember that as they do, the Search will be removing institutions that do not match all of the student’s specified criteria.
While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained within the Search, USEF is not responsible for misprints, out-of date information, typographical or other errors appearing in this listing. Information is subject to change without notice. Please recognize this list is not inclusive of all schools with equestrian programs or teams. These organizations and establishments are independent entities and are not agents of USEF. Information and links are provided purely as a service and such information does not represent an endorsement or recommendation, implied or otherwise of the organizations listed, or any responsibility for the content of such websites.
No one search can replace the experience of visiting the campus first hand and interacting with professors and administrators in your chosen field. This tool should be used only as a starting place to begin your research. Additional resources are available HERE.
