There was a moment of tension in the final veterinary inspection of the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships when overnight second-placed CH-J* horse, Indie, was sent to the hold box, but upon reinspection he was accepted and will move forward to show jumping with Sloane Pierpont representing Area II.
Mojo (ridden by Sophie Tice) for Area VI was also sent to the hold box, but passed upon reinspection.
In the CICOY2*, Emily Thompson’s Canadian Team mount Paddington was held, but was also accepted after his second presentation to the Ground Jury.
All 47 NAJYRC horses that completed cross-country have passed the final veterinary inspection and will move onto show jumping today. The CH-J* will tackle Chris Barnard’s show jumping course at 10:00 am (MST) this morning, and the CICOY2* will begin at 12:30 pm (MST).

The FEI has published its Policy for Enhanced Competition Safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, aimed at assisting organizers and national federations with the safe resumption of international equestrian events in line with national and local restrictions.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has approved additional modifications to the qualification period for the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. The AEC is scheduled to take place August 25-30, 2020 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, and the USEA is doing everything possible to ensure a safe and successful Championship, while also ensuring fair opportunities for all.
This article will be updated to include statements as they are released from upcoming USEA recognized events regarding actions they are taking due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
