NAYC Training 3-Day Team Championships
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.
USEA Area IV Young Riders will provide rider entry fee and stabling, 1 food wristband per competitor, coaching throughout the competition as well as Area IV Young Rider team apparel.
A selection committee will choose team members to represent Area IV at the T3D Championships at Rebecca Farm based upon the following requirements:
