Program Overview

The FEI Jumping North American Youth Championship for Children, Junior, and Young Rider categories provides an exciting opportunity for riders in these age groups to compete against their peers in a Championship format similar to that of that of international senior Championships like the Olympic Games. Competition in each age category is held over the course of multiple days and features both a Team Competition, with Teams fielded by Zone, and an Individual Competition.  

The 2019 FEI NAYC will be held at Old Salem Farm in North Salem NY.

The categories are as follows:

          Child Rider Championship (NAChC): athletes FEI ages 12 - 14, fences up to 1.25m                   

          Junior Rider Championship (NAJC): athletes FEI ages, 14 - 18, fences up to 1.40m
