January 2021 Young Rider (Youth Team) and Interscholastic Meeting



Our first meeting of the year. Many changes have been made to the current Young Rider/YRAP programs in an effort to continue with the national and area wide Young Rider/ne Youth Team concepts.

New Interscholastic Team League

Chris went over first the new procedures for getting all youth eventers interested in the new program for Interscholastic Teams. This program is for junior riders 7th-12th grade, at any level in recognized eventing. (The USEA is referring to the program as the “IEL”, Interscholastic Eventing League) It has a dedicated page the website here:

New Young Rider Team Challenge Set

While there is no longer a North American Young Rider three day event championship, in its place the governing bodies have developed a new Youth Team Challenge, with finals to be held at existing horse trials on both the east and west coasts. The news about this was posted at both the USEF and USEA this fall.  

A reminder from Chris Donovan, Area II Young Rider coordinator: riders must declare on your USEF Dashboard.  If you PLAN to complete at the Modified level or above in 2021 - you should sign up!! Please go to your USEF Dashboard and complete your declaration.  We are expecting to see 50+ Area 2 Youth riders declared for 2021. Events will be selected that will hold these competitions, and a list will be posted next year.
For more information be sure to join in the monthly YR conference call/zoom meeting January 7. For information, contact Chris Donovan.
