Canadian Riders competing in the FEI Junior division have the opportunity to qualify for the following Championships:
The North American Junior, Young Riders’ Championship (NAJYRC) is the premier competition for Junior and Young Riders, in the equestrian disciplines of Dressage, Eventing and Show Jumping.
Riders are invited to compete via each country’s national equestrian federation in North and Central America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. The broad range of competitors attending the championships produces an Olympics–like atmosphere throughout the competition week.
Dressage Canada National Youth Championships
Started in 2005, the Dressage Canada National Youth Championships provide a terrific platform for Canada's emerging talent. The head-to-head format proves to be an exciting competition as riders sharpen their skills over the competition season, collecting valuable qualifying scores in order to represent their region. The Championships provide excellent training for the future as the qualifying system is structured in a similar fashion to that used for high performance senior athletes.
