The NAJYRC will host nine championships for Juniors and Younger Riders in 2014 (Sportfot)
Lexington, Ky. – With a little over two months before the Opening Ceremonies take place at the 2014 Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North, planning is well underway. Entry in Principle has closed with a record number of teams scheduled to compete in the five disciplines of dressage, endurance, eventing, jumping and reining, totaling nine championships for Juniors and Young Riders. This year NAJYRC will run July 15-20, 2014 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky.
The Tentative Competition Schedule for competitors is available here, as well as all discipline Draft Schedules that have been approved by the FEI. We have made some changes to the schedule this year, as we are sharing the Kentucky Horse Park with the U.S. Pony Club Festival.
There is also a Chef’s Manual and other useful information posted on the website; please reference the Team Resources page for more information: http://www.youngriders.org/FAQ.aspx.
As qualifying is well underway for most disciplines, it’s a good time to make sure all your FEI numbers are up to date and your horse’s passport is valid.
