The North American Junior Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) is a unique and prestigious competition which brings together the top Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) Junior and Young Riders, age 14-21, from throughout North American and neighboring countries. Teams of qualified riders vie for team and individual FEI medals in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of show jumping, dressage, and eventing, the Para-Olympic discipline of para-dressage, and the FEI World Equestrian Games disciplines of reining and endurance.

NAJYRC is subject to the rules and restrictions of the FEI and is designated as a Continental Championship. It is the only FEI championship held annually on this continent. The NAJYRC process can be daunting for new participants; click the button below for all the information you will need!
