  • 2022 USEF Eventing National Young Rider Championships: Entry Info

    From Chris Donovan, Area II Young Rider Coordinator: (This information was emailed to each of you - check your email!)

    How likely am I to be picked as part of the Squad?
    See attached.  The first set of factors are based on the athlete/horse competition record.  We track this information in detail on the following page.
    Please look at the second tab called "YTC 2022 Results"  This shows your ranking overall.  We use the filters (along with riders age) to determine the top candidates for each level.   
    Letters of explanation - There are times when a ranking is the result of a negative performance that can be justified.  Athletes are encouraged to send a letter to explain any extenuating circumstances, factors, for the Selectors to consider.  Examples would be:  Time faults as a result of footing, a glance off because of a spook, or a hold on course where you choose to retire instead of waiting for a restart.  Justifications should be sent while the information is fresh in your mind.  Letters received AFTER closing date of Championships may not be considered.
    For all those still working toward your  althlete/horse MER at the level - good luck!  
    Feel free to reach out with any questions. (The two new documents regarding YR Area selection and the USEF selection procedures have been uploaded to the 2022 YR folder)
