  • Virtual Teams Points System  * Revised 5/22/18. USEA has changed their results reporting. Number of horses per division is no longer listed on the Rider or Horse History. To find that number required going to the competition results page for each ride and was extremely time consuming. We will no longer award points for each horse the rider finished ahead of in the division.
