Miami, Fla. – Deadlines are approaching for the 2018 College Prep Invitational (CPI) Florida, which takes place Jan. 12-14, 2018 at Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in West Palm Beach.

After Dec. 1, applicants will incur a $50 late fee.

One of the primary goals of the CPI Horse Show is to help promote high school student riders to equestrian colleges and universities they are interested in applying to. The resume is a full-page ad that includes their education, volunteer service, awards and skills/academic achievements to provide a well-rounded profile of each rider.

The cost per rider resume is $100 and the deadline to submit the resume is Dec. 1 via www.collegeprepinvitational.com/2018-cpi-florida-rider-resume/

There are several scholarships and awards for which riders may apply. All have deadline of Dec. 1 except for the CPI Photojournalistic Scholarship Award which must be submitted by Feb. 16.

See www.collegeprepinvitational.com/cpi-florida/ for more information and complete rules.

The CPI Florida has added an new element to its weekend of events - The CPI Team Challenge. Designed to mimic the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association model of team competition, all CPI riders will be placed randomly on teams for the CPI Team Challenge. Teams will earn points from their performance throughout the weekend of competition, which will be tracked on a special event leaderboard. After the points are tallied at the end of the competition, CPI will award special ribbons and prizes to Team Challenge participants based on their team's overall performance.

About the College Preparatory Invitational

The CPI is a three-day event designed to educate student riders about the different formats of college equestrian competitions and provide riders with resources to help them create their desired college equestrian experience. Riders in grades 8 through 12 have a chance to win scholarships in hunt seat equitation competition and participate in educational presentations throughout the event. In an effort to encourage academic excellence and embed social integrity as a lifelong commitment to the equestrian sport, the CPI Scholarship and Educational Fund also awards riders the opportunity to win scholarships for academics and community service.
