U.S. Athletes (U.S. citizens) wishing to compete in International Events must receive permission from US Equestrian. Please see the Additional Resources section below for information on the protocols and criteria for competing abroad.
Applications to compete abroad as an Individual (not on a U.S. Team) are completed through the US Equestrian Athlete Services organization.
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 Applications: Required for selection to a Team. The Online Applications section allows athletes to apply for selection to a CSIO Event at which the U.S. will field a Team. This process is managed by US Equestrian Jumping and information about upcoming Team Events is available in the U.S. Nations Cup Teams section. The Jumping 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 Event, CSI or CSIO, whether in the U.S. or abroad. The FEI Entry process in managed by US Equestrian Athlete Services.
