U.S. Equestrian Federation officials announced today (March 22) that they’re seeking bids to host the North American Young Riders Championships in 2008 and 2009. The championships host competitions for young riders (ages 16-21) and juniors (ages 14-18) in show jumping, eventing and dressage from the United States, Canada and Central America.
Since 1989, only two U.S. locations have hosted the NAYRC—Tempel Farms in Wadsworth, Ill., and the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, Va. The 2006 and 2007 NAYRC will be at the Virginia Horse Center.
Because of school schedules, the NAYRC must be held during the first two weeks in August.
