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 at:
http://www.youngriders.org/Schedule.aspx, 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.

Elite competitors from North America will gather at the Kentucky Horse Park, July 15-20, 2014 (Brant Gamma)
