Young Riders Team

Young Rider Logo

The US Saddle Seat Equitation Young Riders Team was created by The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) with the purpose to develop riders for future US Saddle Seat World Cup competitions. During years that the Saddle Seat World Cup competition is not held, members of the Young Riders Team will be eligible to represent the United States in other international competitions. Each team will be made up of five riders and one alternate in both the three- and five-gaited sections.

Unlike the selection process for the US Saddle Seat World Cup Team, riders will not have to attend live tryouts to be selected for the US Saddle Seat Equitation Young Rider Team. Instead, selection will be based on an application and riding video. For more information please contact any of the following National Affiliates staff members:

Lori Nelson, lnelson@usef.org
Terra Schroeder, tschroeder@usef.org
