The FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) for Dressage is the premier equestrian competition in North America for junior and young riders, ages 14-21. Young equestrians vie for team and individual FEI medals in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of dressage, show jumping, and eventing. The competition is run under FEI (Federation Equestre Internationale), the international governing body of equestrian sport, and is the only FEI championship held annually on this continent. 


US Equestrian, Equestrian Canada, and the Mexican Equestrian Federation, with support of the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), have announced the cancellation of the 2020 Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) for Dressage and Jumping. The 2021 NAYC for Dressage and Jumping was scheduled to run from August 9-15 at the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival in Traverse City, Mich.
