2014 NCEA Championship Bracket (PDF)

The nation’s top-12 teams will vie for the 2014 National Collegiate Equestrian Association National Championship, set to take place April 17-19 at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas.

Beginning with the 2014 championship, the top-12 overall teams (Western and Hunt Seat combined) are invited to compete. The NCEA Selection Committee determines and invites these teams based on a number of factors throughout the season.

The top-four seeds in the NCEA Championship each receive first-round byes in the 12-team format. The top-four seeds to this year’s event include Southeastern Conference Champion South Carolina, Big 12 Conference Champion Oklahoma State, SEC runner-up Georgia and SEC third-place team Auburn.

Auburn is the defending NCEA Overall National Champion. Oklahoma State won the 2013 NCEA Western Championship and Auburn won the 2013 NCEA Hunt Seat Championship.
