The US Equestrian Federation is accepting bid applications to host the 2021 and 2022 North American Youth Championships (NAYC) for Eventing. US Equestrian must receive completed bids on or before Friday, March 27, 2020, by 5:00 p.m. EDT for consideration.
The purpose of conducting a host site bid selection process is to provide US Equestrian with a group of potential venues from which to choose a facility that offers the appropriate amenities worthy of hosting the NAYC for Eventing Junior and Young Rider Team Championships.
The Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships presented by Gotham North is the premier equestrian competition in North America for children, junior, and young riders, ages 12-21. Young equestrians vie for team and individual medals in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of show jumping, dressage, eventing. The NAYC offers an elite opportunity for rising talent to build confidence in both a team and individual championship competition environment, while representing their country under international FEI rules. The competition format, which emulates that of senior championship competition, is essential in the continued development of athletes, while ensuring future success for US Equestrian’s Olympic programs.
The 2020 NAYC for Eventing is being held in conjunction with The Event at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Montana from July 23-26, 2020. The Event at Rebecca Farm offers FEI competition at the CCI4*-L, CCI4*-S*, CCI3*-L, and CCI2*-L levels, as well as national competition at the Novice through the Intermediate levels. Athletes and spectators from across the country come to Rebecca Farm to experience the world-class competition. The Event at Rebecca Farm has hosted the eventing portion of the NAYC since 2017.
Submitted bids are not a legally binding document and do not create any legal obligations between US Equestrian and the organizer. US Equestrian is not responsible for undelivered applications. US Equestrian has the discretion to award NAYC for single or multiple years.

There were surprisingly few shakeups to the top of the leaderboards Friday at the MARS Bromont CCI, but the incredibly close scores leave no margin for error heading into Saturday’s exciting cross-country phase across all five levels.
Tomorrow, the first of five regional clinics for the USEA Emerging Athletes U21 (EA21) Program kicks off in the central region of the country in Benton, Louisiana, at Holly Hill Farm. Throughout the summer, the remaining clinics on the East and West Coast will follow. At each clinic, 12 hand-selected riders will participate in a two-day clinic led by USEA Eventing Coaches Program (ECP) coaches. The purpose of the EA21 program is to create a pipeline for potential team riders by identifying and developing young talent, improving horsemanship and riding skills, and training and improving skills and consistency. The intention is to provide young athletes with access to an added level of horsemanship and riding skills to further their training and skill development with greater consistency.
After the first day of competition, Canadian Olympian Colleen Loach and her horse FE Golden Eye lead an international field in the CCI4*-L division of the MARS Bromont CCI.
