The USEA Young Riders program is designed to offer support for event riders of all levels, ages 21 and under, by communicating available educational opportunities such as camps, clinics, course walks, etc. and providing a pipeline of qualified riders in each Area to field teams for the following competitions:
- North American Young Riders Championship
- Young Riders National Championships
- European Young Riders Championships
The program is coordinated by Area and is managed by the Area’s Young Rider Coordinator(s). Most ESDCTA youth members are in Area II.
Each Area Young Rider program is divided into two sub-programs: Young Rider (YR) and Young Rider Advancement Program (YRAP).
