Sixty-one horses were presented and accepted at the first horse inspection today at the Adequan North American Youth Championships (NAYC). This is the third consecutive year the NAYC has been held at The Event at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Mont. and the first time in a long time that all 10 USEA Areas have been represented. Canada also has a presence at the NAYC this year with riders from Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario.

The CCIJ2*-L has eight U.S. teams competing from all 10 USEA Areas and two Canadian teams, totaling 48 horses, while the CCIY3*-S has 13 pairs competing all on scramble teams. The NAYC ground jury of Mark Weissbecker and Peter Gray sent Sofie Harangozo’s CCIJ2*-L mount Rain Dancer, a 12-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Ruffian x Lady Logan) owned by Cynthia McNemar to the hold box, but then accepted him upon reinspection. Tosca Holmes-Smith’s CCIY3*-S mount Tom Riddle (Towkay x D’pix), a 13-year-old New Zealand Thoroughbred gelding owned by Ali Holmes-Smith was also sent to the holding box and then accepted after a second look.

All of the horses will now move onto dressage with the CCIY3*-S kicking off tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. (MT) and the CCIJ2*-L will enter the arena Friday morning at 8:00 a.m. (MT).
