Young Rider Representatives

The Area VII Young Riders have two Young Rider Representatives, one a Young Rider Representative and the other a Junior Young Rider Representative. These positions are identified as role models whom provide guidance to other area Young Riders and are available to address concerns, support and encouragement at the peer to peer level.  


Olivia Remcho
2018-2020 Area VII Junior Young Rider Representative

Olivia is a high school student from Corvallis, Oregon, and rides at Willamette Sport Horses. She has been eventing for 8 years and been a member of the Area VII Young Rider Program for 4 years. She has competed through the training level and participated in the YRAP Team Challenge 2017 as well. She is currently riding her own horse Jack, who will make his eventing debut in the 2018 season, and is also riding and competing her trainers’ horse Charlie, with big plans for the upcoming year. She’s always around at shows and Young Rider clinics and socials, so be sure to stop by with any questions about the program or just to say hello! 

Emmie Everett
2018-2020 Area VII Young Rider Representative

Emmie is currently a sophomore at Tacoma Community College. From there she intends to transfer to UW-Tacoma to finish her bachelors degree.   She lives in Lakebay, Washington and rides out of  Grand Farms .  She began eventing when she was 10 and has been a member of the Area Young Rider program for 3 years. She  was a groom for the 2017 Area VII 2* team at NAJYRC .   This year she finished the 2017 season completing the CCI 1* with her mare Mimi.  Goals for Emmie in 2018 are to complete a CIC 2* and to try for the Area VII CICOY2* team at the NA Championships at Rebecca Farms in July. Emmie is at the majority of the shows in our Area, either riding, grooming or supporting friends so if you see her, do not hesitate to stop and chat, she can answer questions about the area VII program or is willing to lend a hand if you need help with something!


Qualifications for the Young Rider representative include actively competing in Prelim and above, and qualifications for the Junior Young Rider representative include actively competing Beginner Novice and above.  Representatives end their two year terms with gaining experience in professional settings, learning how to balance many tasks and responsibilities while maintaining a positive upbeat sprit. These positions are very rewarding in the fact that they allow the Young Riders themselves to give back to the Eventing community and let them personally make a difference in our sport by being a leader.

There is no better honor then being an Area VII Young Rider representative let alone the chance to give back to our Eventing community.
