The U25 (or Under 25) division offers an increasingly important way for athletes between the ages of 16 and 25 (FEI age) to bridge the gap between the Young Rider and Grand Prix levels. CDIOU25 events provide an opportunity for the best of these athletes to compete head-to-head in a challenging competition format similar to that for senior athletes.
