US Equestrian has released the dates and location today for the 2022 USEF Young Rider Eventing Championship, which serves to replace the Adequan®/USEF Youth Team Challenge series that took place in 2021. The new-look championship will take place at the Tryon International Three-Day Event, November 10-13, in Mill Spring, N.C., and will award Championship titles at CCI1*-L, CCI2*-L, and CCI3*-L. Applications and area declaration forms can be found on the Athlete Dashboard and will be accepted now through May 1, 2022, at 12:00 p.m. (noon) ET.

The USEF Youth Team Challenge Task Force took feedback from Area Coordinators and participants in evaluating the YTC program and created the new championship in response to best serve the needs of the community. Host bids for the championship were accepted from November 20 through December 14, 2021, with the popular site of the 2018 World Equestrian Games ultimately winning out.

We’d also love to hear your thoughts on the new championship – does the change feel more exciting and cohesive to you as a competitor, or does the loss of regional championships make it more difficult for you to compete?
