NAJYRC CCI2* gold medalists in action – VIDEO Break

Caroline Martin & Quantum Solace

There will be no North American Young Rider gold medalist this year due to the cancellation of the North American Junior Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) CCI2*. Following the close of Nominated Entries, the FEI requirement of at least two National Federations represented with teams was not met, so the Young Rider division cannot be run as Continental Championships. Young Riders who were planning to compete there still can follow through with their plans because the Organizing Committee at NAJYRC is running a non-championship CCI2* for Young Riders so they can still feel part of the experience, minus the medals. The CCI1* Junior Championship division…

moose rider

    We are not endorsing this but as Canadians and eventers we understand the temptation. However, the welfare of the moose should take precedence over one’s desire to complete their bucket list. Since it is Canada Day, we decided not to gloss over the crazy antics of some of our fellow Canadians and share this shameful exploitation of a swimming moose. The moose was unharmed and this is illegal and these clowns were charged.     You might also enjoy these Eventing Connect features: Today’s SCOOP Oh Canada!
