All 59 horses were accepted this afternoon at the first inspection for the North American Junior & Young Rider Championships at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, Colorado.

Fifteen horses presented in the CICY2*, with all accepted after their first pass down the jog strip. Forty-four horses presented in the CH-J* Championship, with three horses sent to the holding box: Ellis Rold’s mount Fernhill Spring Lightly (Area IV), Carson Richards’ mount Fernhill Mr. Cool (Area III), and Ann Pierce’s mount Dignitarian (Area V). All three were accepted after re-presenting.

The action kicks off tomorrow, with CICY2* dressage starting at 9 a.m. MDT. CH-J* dressage is on Friday.

The USEA published a super guide to the CH-J* teams here and the CICY2* teams here, so be sure to check out those links to get to know the horses and riders.

We’re lucky to have beautiful photos from JJ Sillman throughout the competition, so keep checking back to EN for more. And competitors: We also want to share your own photos on EN! Be sure to tag them on Instagram with #najyrc2016 and #eventing so we can find them.

Go Young Riders!
