All but one of the 42 horses presented to the ground jury early this morning at the 2018 Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) at The Event at Rebecca Farm will continue onto the show jumping phase later this morning.
Both the CCIJ* and the CICOY2* riders presented their horses this morning after an exciting day on Ian Stark’s cross-country courses yesterday. This year’s ground jury for the NAYC in Kalispell, Mont. includes Jo Young (CAN), Robert Stevenson (USA), and Judy Hancock (GBR), and additionally FEI Veterinary Delegate Yves Rossier, and they sent five horses to the hold box in the NAYC inspections.
The tension was high as four horses in the CCIJ1*, Kaala Jaadu, Xyder, Mr. Bojangles and overnight individual leader Dassett Profile were sent to the hold box. Unfortunately, Brianna Maroney’s Kaala Jaadu was not accepted upon reinspection, but the other three horses were. Mr. Candyman was later sent to the hold in the CICOY2* but was accepted upon his second presentation.
Forty-one horses will tackle Chris Barnard’s NAYC show jumping course, as the CCIJ1* kicks things off at 9:45 a.m. (MDT) and the CICOY2* begins at 11:30 a.m.

What do you get when you combine an aviation engineer, a successful amateur rider, and a galloping event horse? The answer, it seems, is the man who has made a massive contribution to the work of the FEI Eventing Risk Management Committee, and his name is David Vos.
