The United States Eventing Association (USEA) recently announced the release of applications for the USEA Emerging Athletes 21 (EA21) program. The USEA would like to remind all USEA Young Rider program members aged 21 and under to apply for the program before the closing date of June 17, 2022.

Applications are open here, and one copy will be sent to the USEA after submission, and one copy will automatically go to the rider’s USEA Area Young Rider Coordinator.

Athletes must select the primary clinic that they are applying for, and it is recommended to have each applicant select a reserve clinic choice in the application, in the case that they are not accepted into their first choice. The athlete must commit to attending the clinic(s) they have applied to if selected. Twelve riders will be accepted in each of the 5 regional clinics:

East Coast I – Morven Park International Equestrian Center (Leesburg, Va.) – July 25-26, 2022

East Coast II – Stable View Farm (Aiken, S.C.) – July 25-26, 2022

West Coast I – Aspen Farms (Yelm, Wash.) – August 15-16, 2022

West Coast II – Twin Rivers Ranch (Paso Robles, Calif.) – August 17-18, 2022

The USEA will cover the regional clinic cost and stabling fees for all accepted applicants. Applicants will be responsible for travel and lodging costs. Athletes will be selected by the designated selectors within their Area of membership and invited to attend one clinic. Accepted applicants will be contacted and announced around July 1, 2022.
