US Equestrian: Equestrian Athlete Lettering Program
You don't have to be a record setting quarterback, point guard or track star to letter in junior high or high school sports anymore. The US Equestrian is writing a new chapter in the recognition of student athletes - one that honors Equestrians.
The US Equestrian Athlete Lettering Program is open to equestrian athletes in all breeds or disciplines who are currently members of US Equestrian or become US Equestrian members. The program runs from June 1-May 31 of each year and will honor those who document their training and competition involvement by awarding emblems and pins.
Students may apply retroactively for previous years if they are still in grades 5-12 and can provide verification for each year. Seniors must submit all documentation by June 15 of their graduating year.
The program recognizes and honors equestrians in grades five to 12. To be eligible, a student must:
- Be a US Equestrian member (Fan or Competing)
- Log 100 hours of equestrian activity
- Compete at three competitions of any type or level (shows do not have to be USEF)
- Submit proof of enrollment in school
Students receive an achievement certificate, a free letterman patch and a lapel pin for each year that they complete the program's requirements. More information about the US Equestrian Lettering program can be found at usef.org/lettering.
