LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Nov. 11–The U.S. Equestrian Federation announced Wednesday that the 2010 Adequan FEI North American Junior/Young Rider Championships will be held at the completely rebuilt Kentucky Horse Park.

The USEF said it has received preliminary approval and is awaiting final allocation from the FEI Bureau for the championships of riders from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and the U.S. to compete on dressage, jumping, eventing and reining July 28-Aug. 1.

“This is a unique opportunity to use a venue which has been completely redesigned. Less than two months later, the world will begin to arrive in Lexington, Kentucky for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games,” the USEF said in a statement.

As competitors begin to plan their 2010 competition seasons the USEF provided the information so Juniors, Young Riders and their Chef d’Equipes can plan accordingly. In 2009, the Kentucky Horse Park welcomed a record number of Juniors and Young Riders for the championships in the three Olympic disciplines and the Western discipline of reining.

Vaulting will again hold an exhibition during the championships and Endurance will run a CEIY2* concurrently in Louisville, about an hour from Lexington.
