“We are thrilled to host the USEF Eventing Young Rider Championships over three days at the Maryland International and Horse Trials,” said competition organizer Carolyn Mackintosh. “Our team is ready to make it a great experience for them.”

“Designing for the USEF Eventing Young Rider Championships is hugely exciting for me,” added cross-country course designer Ian Stark. “They are the future of our sport, and the quality of horses and riders in this competition shows incredible talent and potentially future Olympic team combinations. It’s particularly thrilling that the competition is at Loch Moy, where we have a great variety of jumps with challenging terrain and great footing. All the ingredients for a true championship.”
