Young Rider competition and qualifying information for 2016 have changed! See the Young
Riders section for updates.
The 2016 Area I Annual Meeting will be held Sunday, January 10th, at the Log Cabin in Holyoke, MA. Featured Speaker: Cross
Country Course Designer Tremaine Cooper. Registration details to come soon.
Area I invites all riders planning on qualifying for consideration of a place on the 2016 Area I NAJYRC team to submit the 2016 NAJYRC
Questionnaire. Please read carefully and submit prior to November 30, 2015. This is not the formal “Intent To Qualify and Area Declaration”
that will come in early 2016, rather this is for the coach, chef and selectors to identify those with thoughts and plans to qualify and helps
as part of the planning process. See the Young Riders section for the
Stuart Horse Trials ends!
ATTENTION Young Riders: new Amy Tryon grant available to current active young and past active Young Riders ages between 16-25. See
the Young Riders section for details. This is a gift of honor to recognize
exceptional eventing potential. Deadline of November 5th for the applications.
ATTENTION Young Riders and associates: If you are a current 2015 member of the Area I Young Rider Program (YRAP and NAJYRC branches), a
parent, guardian or trainer of a YR, you should have received an invitation to join the new AREA I Google Group called AREA1-YoungRidersGroup.
We've set this up to be the official central communications bulletin board for posting information of interest, key activities for both
branches and news and updates for everyone connected to the YR Program.
If you have not replied to or received your invitation (emails taken from current USEA member roster), please email
email@example.com and Deb will add you to the group.
We will be making the first call for any rider hopefuls for 2016 NAJYRC and 2016 YR Camp (save the dates) very soon. Make sure you are a
member of the Google Group to stay up to date with your YR Programs. Deb Meek - YR Coordinator
The Area I Council is delighted to announce that Deb Meek will be taking over the role of Coordniator for the Young Rider Program.
Now residing in Maine, Deb and her family hail from Central England where growing up on a horse farm in the birthplace of the sport fueled
her lifelong love of eventing as a competitor, volunteer and teacher. She shares this passion with her 13 year old daughter Magdalene (Mags).
New to the US eventing world in 2013 she quickly committed to working alongside the area’s volunteers, coaches and parents to continue to
develop the program to serve both emerging young event riders and our championship level performance athletes.

If you respond to any submission on the Area I web site, please, be aware that while we try to
post only "legitimate" submissions, occasionally there may be something which turns out to be
unethical or inappropriate (such as a clinic offering, schooling show listing, or classified ad).
As with any other web site, it's your responsibility (and yours alone) to
decide whether to pursue a listing or a response to your listing.
Photographers at events: Only official photographers are listed on the Area I site - these are
professionals who have secured permission from the hosting organizer to shoot at the event. For
liability and safety reasons, and other concerns, those who do not have permission from the event
to photograph are not listed. If you want to know who unofficially photographed at an event, you
need to contact the organizer directly.
If you know an Area I location which offers XC jumps/courses on which to practice, please
email and they'll be listed at the bottom of the
