Lexington, KY 
- The 2012 Show Jumping European Young and Junior Rider Tour gets underway this week in Belgium. Five up-and-coming Young Riders and one Junior Rider from the U.S. will compete alongside some of the best rising talent in Europe at three prestigious competitions over the next month. The first stop on the 2012 tour is this weekend's CSIOYJ Bonheiden, which runs May 17-20.

The five U.S. riders contesting the CSIOY this weekend have already made an impact on the American jumping scene and look to add to their resumes in Europe. Annie Cook (Woodside, CA) was the winner of the 2005 Adequan/USEF Pony Jumper Individual Championship and in 2008 she was a member of the Gold medal winning Zone 10 team at the 2008 CN FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships. Cook will ride Signe Ostby's Banba and Landkorn 5 in Europe. Jennifer Goddard also brings two horses on the 2012 Show Jumping European Young Rider Tour; Stateside Farm's Unique and Ungaro de la Hot Couture. Goddard (Fort Solanga, NY) enjoyed a successful 2011 season collecting victories at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival and the Lake Placid Horse Show.

Alise Oken (Charlotte, NC) has twice competed at the Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships as part of the Zone 3 Team. In 2012, Oken finished sixth in the Artisan Farm Young Rider Grand Prix Series. She will ride Hi Hopes Farms' Marcus Quintus and Kaid Du Ry as part of the 2012 Show Jumping European Young and Junior Rider Tour. Also competing on the 2012 tour is Lydia Ulrich who tied for second place in the overall standings of the Artisan Farm Young Rider Grand Prix Series. Ulrich (Rochester, NY) will ride Beth Congel and Up The Creek Farm's Santos Utopia in Europe, this is the same horse she rode on the winning team in the $20,000 Artisan Farms Young Rider Team Event.

Rounding out the Young Rider squad is Chloe Reid (Washington, DC). Reid was part of the fourth placed team in the Junior Championship at the 2011 Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships riding Toulon. In Europe she will ride Chloe D Reid LLC's Toulon and M.M.A. Everse's Zsa Zsa.

Sydney Shulman will represent the U.S. in the CSIOJ at Bonheiden. The Junior Rider was on the Bronze medal winning Junior Team at the 2011 Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships. Shulman (Greenwich, CT) brings John Madden Sales Inc's Little Lady D'Elle as well as Maria Werner's Zimza La Bim on the 2012 tour.
The Young Riders will ride in Nations Cup competition Saturday and all riders will contest Grand Prix competition Sunday.
