The U.S. Equestrian Federation this week announced the host locations for the 2022-2024 USEF/National Collegiate Equestrian Association Junior Hunter Seat Medal Finals for the East, Central and West regions. This program seeks to introduce riders to the NCEA’s format of hunter/jumping seat equitation collegiate riding and is an expansion of the NCEA’s existing junior hunt seat medal program. This year’s finals will take place as follows:
USEF/NCEA Junior Hunter Seat Medal Finals – East: Pennsylvania National Horse Show, Oct. 22, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
USEF/NCEA Junior Hunter Seat Medal Finals – Central: Showplace Fall Classic, Sept. 10, Roscoe, Illinois
USEF/NCEA Junior Hunter Seat Medal Finals – West: National Sunshine Series II, Nov. 12, Thermal, California
A task force appointed by USEF President Tom O’Mara was formed with the purpose of reviewing the bid applications and providing a recommendation of host sites for the 2022-2024 competition years in all three regions. The task force reviewed the submitted bid applications and considered many factors, including the facility, scheduling, competition environment and migration of exhibitors. Each host venue was ultimately selected because it presented the best options for those factors.
