Eventing is a demanding sport both mentally and physically. The three different phases require intelligence, training and competing skills, and bravery.  At any competition level, an eventer can experience problems such as loss of confidence, fear of injury, inability to focus or to perform efficiently under pressure. Often, an individual is unaware of self-talk or habits that are counterproductive. Discussion with a qualified sports counselor can help that eventer develop the insight and desire to identify and implement more productive attitudes and behaviors.  This process can illuminate and enhance the eventer both as a person and as a rider. The Worth the Trust Sports Psychology Scholarships have been created to provide event riders with this opportunity.

It was the scramble team of Area I/IV that took home the gold medal in the CICOY2* at the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Mont. Finishing on a cumulative score of 198, the Area I/IV Team reached a whopping 17.8 lead over silver medal team, Area VII, who finished on a 215.8.

After Emily Thompson withdrew her 12-year-old Connemara gelding Paddington (Yavari x Glen Abbey) before show jumping, and the other three members of the team took down rails, overnight leading team Canada dropped two podium places to end up taking home the bronze medal instead.

Chris Barnard’s show jumping course shook up the CH-J* leaderboard today at the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Mont. In the end, Area VI came out on top as the 2017 NAJYRC CH-J* Champions after laying down a couple double clear rounds, cumulating a final team score of 161.6.

When overnight leaders Area I fell down to fourth place position after dropping numerous rails, Area II was able to move up to take home silver after putting in three clear rounds on a final score of 164.1. Canada, who sat in second place position overnight, had no room for error today, but unfortunately the team pulled some rails, knocking them down a podium position to take home the bronze medal on a 165.2.

There was a moment of tension in the final veterinary inspection of the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships when overnight second-placed CH-J* horse, Indie, was sent to the hold box, but upon reinspection he was accepted and will move forward to show jumping with Sloane Pierpont representing Area II. 

Mojo (ridden by Sophie Tice) for Area VI was also sent to the hold box, but passed upon reinspection.

In the CICOY2*, Emily Thompson’s Canadian Team mount Paddington was held, but was also accepted after his second presentation to the Ground Jury.
