The Canadian Reining Committee (CRC) is pleased to announce that the 2011 edition of the Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships, presented by Gotham North, will include a Junior Division in addition to Young Riders for the discipline of reining.
The two reining divisions, Junior (open to riders aged 14 to 18) and Young Rider (for riders ages 16-21), will compete for top team and individual honours on July 27–31, 2011 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY.
“I am totally thrilled by the announcement to include a Junior division at the Championships in Kentucky this summer. Ever since Young Riders Reining was added in 2008 I have been pushing to have the juniors included,” said the reining Chef d’équipe, Wendy Dyer. “This is a great event and I am looking forward to watching Reining participation grow at this event and interest spread further across Canada.”
Riders interested in participating in the FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships must earn a qualifying score at an Equine Canada competition prior to May 31, 2011. Complete details and selection criteria for riders interested in participating at the Championships are available on the Canadian Reining Committee section of the Equine Canada website at www.equinecanada.ca/reining.
