• 2022 Young Riders Program Ramping Up - February Notes From Chris Donovan, AR2 YR Coordinator

    February, 2022 - From AR2 YR Coordinator Chris Donovan:

    Please note the 2022 schedule (posted in YR Forms, 2022 folder). It will be a busy year assuming we keep Covid at bay. Some reminders for February:

  • Area II Report: Wrapping up the 2021 USEA Convention

    In this report: Young Riders, IEL (Interscholastic Eventing League team program)

    Notes from 2021 USEA National Convention, Young Riders National meeting, attended by Chris Donovan, Area II YR/YRAP/ISL Coordinator

    Emerging Athletes, aged 21 and up (who compete at Modified level and up) will be coordinated by David O'Connor through the USEA program. The ages have rotated upward and separated into two courses:  the 2021 E18 and E25 have been combined and are now E21 and E25. The E25 will be coordinated by Leslie Law through the USEF. Application to apply will be through USEF dashboard for both E21 and E25 (maybe a USEA dashboard might be available for E21 - but it is not ready yet.)

    Among the topics discussed:

  • The Interscholastic Eventing League: 2022 Area II Team Winners

    We had a great discussion about three main topics at the USEA Annual Meeting in Savannah today. We covered:1. 2024 IEL Championships  2. Creation of a National IEL Team Leaderboard  3. How to promote and grow the program

    NOW is the time to register your Team! For 2023 the cost to register your IEL is $75.00; there is no additional fees to your team riders to participate on your IEL team.  These funds will be used by the National Office to automate IEL administration, create a leaderboard, and fund awards  for the IEL championships. Please see the following documents - the 2023 IEL application and the team roster template. Please use this template when submitting your team (affiliate) member list. Your application can be sent via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Cindy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Either will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have. -- Chris Donovan, Area 2 IEL Coordinator (by the way if there is anyone in Area 2 wishing to assist with this program, please contact Chris to help.)
