July 21, 2011–The very prestigious Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships will be at the Kentucky Horse Park July 27-31.
The NAJYRC is the premier equestrian competition in North America for junior and young riders, age 14-21. Young equestrians come from the U.S, Bermuda, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean Islands to vie for team and individual FEI medals in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of show jumping, dressage, eventing and the FEI World Equestrian Games disciplines of reining and (for the first time) endurance. They will use 75 miles of the now world-famous endurance course designed for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
The competition is the only FEI championship held annually on this continent.
The NAJYR is included with park admission.
