Did you know that there is a shortage of eventing officials in the U.S.? Technical delegates, judges and course designers play a critical role in our sport, and as our current group of wonderful officials retire, the USEA’s Training Program for Eventing Officials aims to recruit, train and license the next generation.

How does the licensing process for officials work? The USEF is responsible for licensing officials at the “r,” “R,” and “S” levels to officiate at National events, and the USEA provides various training programs to meet these licensing requirements. As we look ahead to 2017, the USEA has released the schedule of training programs for those seeking to become a licensed technical delegate, judge or course designer.

If you’re on the fence about whether to take the plunge to become an official, the three training programs before the final examination are open to auditors at a cost of $50 per day. This is a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with the licensing process and see if becoming an official is right for you.

Wondering if you are qualified to become an “r” Eventing Licensed Official? Click the links below for a detailed look at the requirements.

If you have questions about any of the USEF licensing documents, you can contact [email protected]. For more information about the USEA Training Programs for Eventing Officials, please contact Nancy Knight at [email protected] or 703-669-9997.
