  • 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.
    https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/seanna.miller/viz/USEAAreaII2022YTC/YouthTeamChallenge2022Summary
    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.   
    ACTION DESIRED:
    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)

  • Area II Season Update

    Area II bragging rights: The world's newest 5-star event, the Maryland 5-Star held at Fair Hill NRMA in Elkton, MD., took place last weekend and the winner was Boyd Martin on On Cue, from Cochranville, PA., keeping it all in the area! We are all very proud of Boyd and his program, his supporters and owners, and of course, hundreds of Area II volunteers who worked for this event. It was live streamed all over the world and had six overseas competitors attend. (See stories and results at the USEA website, The Chronicle of the Horse, and watch video at the USEF Network for more on this exciting competition.)

    The Area II Championships were held at the Maryland Horse Trials at Loch Moy on Oct. 1-2, and a wrap up of this competition is coming! We had a beautiful new trophy to award to the winning Junior Training rider and horse courtesy of the familes who loved Cadenza Aria. Pictures soon!

    The Young Event Horse eastern championships were also held last week (Oct. 14-15) at Fair Hill. This wraps up the Young Event Horse competition for the year, and the Future Event Horse championships were completed in September.

    Our newest year end awards in 2021 included both Future Event Horse and Young Event Horse categories, based on average scores and we are pleased to ANNOUNCE the following Area II Year End Award winners for Future Event Horse and Young Event Horse: (winners with a minimum 3 competition scores).
