Lexington, KY – The US Hunter Jumper Association has been a supporter of the FEI North American Junior/Young Rider Championships since 2006, serving as the title sponsor of the show jumping championships since 2007. They continue their support this year as the presenting sponsor of the Jumping Championship at the 2009 Adequan FEI North American Junior/Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North (NAJYRC). The title sponsor of Jumping is longtime NAJYRC supporter CN.
Having served as title sponsor, the USHJA now moves to presenting sponsor which allows the generous support of both CN and the USHJA to continue in a mutual effort, ensuring a great competition for the Jumping riders.
“The fundamental values of the NAJYRC speak directly to the mission of the USHJA,” said Bill Moroney, USHJA President. “We see our support of the NAJYRC as part of our continuing role in serving the USHJA constituents with support and opportunity.”
The USHJA’s mission is to unify and represent the interests of all levels of participants in order to promote and enhance the hunter/jumper discipline and provide beneficial educational experiences.
The 2009 NAJYRC will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY July 21-26, 2009. This is the first time the event will be run at this venue. This FEI Championship features four disciplines: Dressage, Eventing, Jumping and the Western discipline of Reining. These Championships feature the top riders in the country. In the North American Junior Championships, Juniors ages 14-18 vie for Team and Individual medals, and the North American Young Rider Championships showcases riders 18-21.
