Press Release: US Equestrian Announces Launch of USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge Series as Evolution of North American Youth Championships

The year 2020 brought many changes, and it is during this time that the USEF pivoted the Eventing North American Youth Championships to the Adequan®/USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge. We are extremely grateful to all of the hosts of the Eventing North American Youth Championships over the past 40+ years. The Championships provided invaluable experience, memories and opportunities for all involved.

We look forward to introducing the Youth Team Challenge in 2021, which will offer more athletes the opportunity to participate in a team environment. The Youth Team Challenge will mimic the Nations Cup Series with selected short formats leading up to a fall long format on both coasts. The Team Challenge will also allow for athletes 25 and under to participate. The host competitions are selected through a bid process, and the 2021 locations are below.

All U.S. athletes interested in competing in a YTC competition in 2021 must complete their Area Declaration by February 15, 2021 at 5 p.m. EST. The Area Declaration form is found in an athlete's MyUSEF account under the Athlete Dashboard
