Area IV NAYC Training 3-Day Team

The Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) competition is held annually in the summer. Teams from all areas of the U.S. as well as from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, the Bahamas and the Caribbean are invited to compete in this international event.  The championship models the format of the Olympic Games. In the Eventing competition, each area will send a team and/individuals to represent their area at the CCI-L** and CCI-S*** levels. From very early on, many young riders see this as a potential goal for themselves as they progress through the levels of competition.

 For the first time ever NAYC will be hosting a Training 3-Day Team Championships held July 24-28th, 2019 at The Event at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, MT. One team of 4 will be selected to represent Area IV. Team members will be included in all aspects of NAYC:  meals, team clothing, coaching and camp. T3D members will be stabled together but will be separate from the NAYC CCI-L** and CCI-S*** teams due to FEI requirements.

The following individuals have been selected to represent Area IV at the Inaugural NAYC Training 3-Day Team Championships:

Annika Weisjahn

Annika is 20 years old from Hugo, MN but is currently living in Des Moines, IA to ride with her trainer Meaghan Marinovich and attend Drake University where she just finished her sophomore year. Annika has had horses and been riding since she was very young, she started off competing in the hunter and jumper rings before discovering Pony Club where she learned about eventing. She has been eventing for the past 6 years and has competed through the preliminary level. Annika will be riding Wayward Son (Loki) owned by the Spencer family. Loki is an 8y/o 17.0 hh OTTB.

 Mya Poulos

My name is Mya Poulos, I am 15 years old and live in Barrington Hills, Illinois. I train with Julie Bryer, Claire Yates, and Amelia McArdle. I have been riding since I was 4 and started eventing at 11. I have had my horse Guy’s Elegant Miss (Ellie) for a year and a half. Ellie is an 11 year old Canadian Warmblood that has competed up to Advanced. I hope to one day compete at the Olympics and Kentucky Three Day Event!
