**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR NAJYRC RIDER AND GROOM CANDIDATES**
Per FEI and USEF Criteria for 2017, all qualifying criteria is required to be posted prior to the first Observation Event.
Further to the 2017 FEI Criteria, each Area was assigned the task of further developing selection criteria standards for riders and grooms.
Your Area I NAJYRC Selectors and Coach have been hard at work this past week creating the final criteria.
This final criteria has been incorporated into the language of the 2017 FEI document for context - it expands the FEI Selection Criteria Par 3
C/C. The FEI have not developed all of their forms, however, the requirement to publish prior to the first Observation Event prevails and we
are publishing today.
Other noteworthy changes:
- If a rider wishes to be considered for a groom position, in the case on non selection as a rider, s/he is required to fill out the Area I
Groom Application. The deadline for and (rider) groom applications is midnight March 30, 2017. All rider-groom applications must be on file
with Chef Carol Mayo by that time to be accepted for 2017 team consideration. Additionally, any rider-groom candidates will be required to
participate in the "groom selection assignments" at the Team Training Camp in June under Buck Davidson's Head Groom, Katherine Murray.
- The 2017 Observation Events have now been assigned a principal selector/s for each one. Other Selectors may attend on an "at large" basis.
- All riders must declare their Area to USEF prior to March 1, 2017 - this is a new FEI rule change for 2017.
- Groom Criteria for selection is outlined above.
The first of the individual fundraising monies for rider and groom candidates are due to Area I Treasurer George Cheney no later than March 1,
2017. Please refer to the details outlined on your application (address, etc).
If you have any questions, please contact Chef Carol.
Good luck, Deb Meek, Area I YR Coordinator, 207-831-8256, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Road to Montana - 2017 NAJYRC Campaign
Kicked Off December 30, 2016: The new coach for Area I is Buck Davidson
Area I is honored Buck will be spearheading our Team of riders and grooms in their 2017 campaign!
Buck shared today, "I am very excited about the opportunity to coach Area I. As a past medalist from the NAYJRC who has been fortunate enough
to win medals for the USA, I can attest to the importance of Young Riders. I grew up playing team sports, and know the value of a good coach.
The coach needs to understand all the players and the players need to know and trust the coach. It is not always about the X's and O's!!
"I spend lots of time dreaming, and no dream is too big. We have a great team of people on the ground to make this as successful as possible
for these riders and grooms." Buck went on to elaborate, "this is the right time for me to do this and along with the Area I Management Team,
we will make Area I THE model program and team in the country. I have only one promise: the riders and grooms will be more exposed to
the equestrian world after being part of the 2017 Area I NAJYRC Team. I'm looking forward to the ride!"
This year the Team will have a special Team Training Camp at Buck's farm in PA and new for 2017, groom candidates will be eligible to bring
their horses to the team camp. All applicants must be current members of Area I's 2017 YR Program.
