Expressions of Interest Now Open for 2020, 2021, and 2022 FEI North American Youth Championships

By USEF - Press Release

The US Equestrian Federation (US Equestrian) is accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the 2020, 2021, and 2022 FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) for Dressage and Jumping, in addition to a Team Championship held at the FEI levels for Juniors and Young Riders for Eventing. US Equestrian must receive EOIs on or before Friday, May 31, 2019, by 5:00 p.m. EDT for consideration.

US Equestrian will accept EOIs from event organizers to host one individual discipline championship, a combination of discipline championships, or a full combined championship with all three disciplines. US Equestrian has the discretion to award NAYC for single or multiple years. The FEI has final approval on the allocation of the NAYC for Jumping and Dressage competitions. US Equestrian may give preference to submitted applications offering multiple discipline championships. While keeping all the disciplines together is preferred, US Equestrian will consider each application on its merits.

The purpose of conducting a host site bid selection process is to provide US Equestrian with a group of potential venues from which to choose a facility that offers the appropriate amenities worthy of hosting the FEI NAYC for Dressage, Jumping, and an Eventing Junior and Young Rider Team Championship.

For more information about the discipline-specific requirements, please visit USequestrian.org. Submitted EOIs are not a legally binding document and do not create any legal obligations between US Equestrian and the organizer. US Equestrian is not responsible for undelivered applications.

Now On Course: Jennarose Ortmeyer Shoots for the Stars

My road to success is a bit different and quite a bit longer than most. Hi, my name is Jennarose Ortmeyer. I am 24 years old and my eventing journey started three years ago in the summer of 2017. Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, I moved to North Carolina in June of 2017 seeking to further my career. I was a professional in the hunter/jumper world then and I hadn’t the faintest idea of how drastically my life was about to change.

Smith Wins CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S; Turner Takes CCI2*-S at Twin Rivers Fall International

The CCI4*-S had an exciting shake-up of the top placings to finish out the International divisions at the Twin Rivers Fall International. It was Tamie Smith and Passepartout, an 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding (Pasco x Preschel) owned by Tamie's daughter Kaylawna Smith-Cook, who came out on top with the fastest cross-country time of the group. Ruth Bley’s 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding Danito (Dancier x Wie Musik) took second. Erin Kellerhouse and her own Woodford Reserve rounded out the top three.

Foregut or Hindgut? That's The Question!

Knowing what sort of support your horse needs can be tough, but it can also make a big difference. There’s a lot of confusion between your horse’s foregut health and hindgut health. After all, the process of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients is all technically “digestion,” so isn’t it all the same? Not quite. The organs in the foregut and hindgut have different functions, and each area has unique health concerns.
