Equestrian Canada (EC) is pleased to confirm the talented young athletes that will represent Canada at the 2018 Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC), presented by Gotham North.

Previously known as the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC), the NAYC will bring together top dressage, eventing and jumping athletes from Canada, the United States and Mexico for the chance to compete for team and individual medals.

The dressage and jumping portion of NAYC will take place July 31 to Aug. 5 at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, NY. Although the eventing portion will not be classified as an FEI Championship due to insufficient entries, competition for youth athletes will be hosted during The Event at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, MT from July 18 to 22.
