From Chris Donovan, Area II Young Rider Coordinator:
"YR Memberships with the usea have been confirmed for those 21 and under. For those competing at the first YTC - Please remember to do your FEI entry on the USEF website, (free) as well as the national entry form, where you pay. On your entry and/or stabling, please leave them a note that states "Area 2 YTC candidate". This helps everyone know. (Organizer, event secretary, stabling manager, Young Rider coordinator.)
On the Facebook/Young Riders page, we posted some links to articles which include Equiratings information you may find useful to evaluate your performance. These are the articles published by the USEA "How Strong is Your (Beginner Novice/Novice/Training/Preliminary) Game". All have been posted at the Facebook page.
Here at the Usea2.net site, if you navigate to the upper right on this page, under YR Forms, there is a detailed list of the Area II selection criteria published in the documents all dated 2021. We are now working on the ratings, so the above information will help you understand the methodology.
