Adequan®/USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge Adds Two New West Coast Legs

By USEF - Edited Press Release

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 Paso Robles – Sept. 23-26, 2021 – Levels: CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S - Paso Robles, Calif.
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.”
