US Equestrian is pleased to announce the addition of two new 2021 dates for the Adequan®/USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge (YTC):

Adequan/USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge Woodside - Oct. 7-9, 2021 – CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S – Woodside, Calif.

These added short format West Coast legs were approved by the USEF Board of Directors in April, adding to the first West Coast YTC date in Yelm, Wash., in June. The East Coast schedule kicked off in March in Aiken, S.C., and includes upcoming stops in Maryland and Pennsylvania. The series will conclude with East and West Coast long format finals in the fall.

The Youth Team Challenge series launched in 2021 and is open to eventing athletes ages 14 through 25 at the CCI1*, CCI2*, and CCI3* levels.

“We’re thrilled to offer two additional opportunities for youth eventing athletes on the West Coast,” said Jenni Autry, Director of Eventing for US Equestrian. “One of our primary goals with the Youth Team Challenge series is to open the door for more athletes to compete in a team environment. We encourage eligible athletes to take advantage of this new program, which we are constantly seeking to grow and expand to fit the needs of youth athletes in the U.S.”

My Valentine Steals Hearts as the 2021 Pony of the Year

Sidnee Milner and My Valentine did not become partners out of sheer coincidence. The pony and rider combination that took home the 2021 SmartPak USEA Pony of the Year award were a product of the thoughtfulness and generosity of family friend and trainer Tawn Edwards. Milner was, at the time, a young and inexperienced child rider looking for a partner to teach her the ropes of eventing; My Valentine was a well-seasoned eventing pony who knew the job of advancing young riders well and was looking for her next partner. Over their three-year relationship, the duo have accumulated various ribbons and accolades together with 2021 being the most impressive of their seasons thus far.
