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.”

USEA Members Share Their Favorite Memories from Steeplechase

There are so many things to love about the USEA Classic Series: the way the conditioning and preparation strengthens your bond with your horse, the educational opportunities to enhance your skills as a rider, and, of course, your chance to experience the rush of the classic long format three-day event. There are eight Classic Series events taking place across the U.S. in the 2022 season and they are a great goal for many horse and rider pairs to work towards. Featuring the traditional long-format phases of roads and tracks and steeplechase in addition to the three regular phases of a horse trial, a USEA Classic Series event puts partnerships to the ultimate test. For riders who have already ticked off completing a long-format event from their bucket list, looking back on the thrill of steeplechase before heading out on cross-country often comes with fond memories. Check out what these USEA riders had to say about their favorite steeplechase moments!
