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. The 2021 Youth Team Challenge concept allowed over 60 athletes from nine areas to compete in team competitions throughout the year. We are appreciative to be able to offer these opportunities to the athletes, but in review of the program the Youth Team Challenge Task Force and Eventing Sport Committee felt that returning to one long -format Championship competition was the best way forward. In 2022 we are pleased to announce that Tryon International 3-Day will host the 2022 USEF Young Rider Eventing Championship on November 10-13, 2022.
2022 USEF Young Rider Eventing Championship Application/Area Declarations are due by May 1, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. est. All athletes that have any intention of competing at the Young Rider Championships must complete an Application/Area Delcaration to be in consideration for an Area team.
See the Forms and Publications below for Selection Procedures and an FAQ on this year's program.
