The Adequan/FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North (NAJYRC) is the premier equestrian competition in North
America for junior and young riders, age 14-21. Young equestrians vie for team and individual FEI medals in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of
show jumping, dressage, eventing, the Para-Olympic discipline of para-dressage and the FEI World Equestrian Games disciplines of reining and endurance.
The competition is run under rules of the FEI (Federation Equestre Internationale), the international governing body for equestrian sport, and is the only
FEI championship held annually on this continent.
Eventing is a test of horse and rider’s skill and all-around ability - the ultimate test of teamwork between horse and rider. This equestrian triathlon was patterned
after the demands of training and testing military chargers: precision, elegance and obedience; stamina, versatility and courage; jumping ability and endurance; and
finally, the horses’ fitness to remain in service.
