Spring Clinic closing date: March 30th


The Young Rider program is offered through the USEA for riders twenty-one years of age and younger in all levels of riding. The purpose of the program is to encourage our younger members to become involved in the sport of Eventing and continue this involvement into their adult lives.

The Young Rider program is divided into two parts: 

  • YRAP - Young Rider Advancement Program and
  • NAJYRC - North American Junior Young Rider Championships

Each functions in cooperation with the other and operate under the facilitation of the Area Young Rider Coordinator.

Our organization seeks to promote a love of the sport of eventing, as well as an appreciation and understanding of the horse while fostering the wonderful relationship that can develop between horse and rider. Involvement in this program helps to instill important moral values, such as responsibility and work ethic, as young riders grow into mature adults.

Area VII Young Rider Coordinator: Karla Nichwander Cell: 770-314-7876.
