LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Jan. 20, 2018–The 2018 Adequan North American Junior & Young Rider Dressage Championships will be staged with jumping at Old Salem Farm in the New York City suburb of North Salem Aug. 1-5.
US Equestrian announced Saturday the host site for the two 2018 championships presented by Gotham North. The jumping championships will also be held there in 2019.
Old Salem Farm sits on 125 acres/50 Ha. in the rolling hills of the New York suburb of North Salem and will be hosting the championships for the first time.
Old Salem Farm hosts the prestigious American Gold Cup CSI4*-W as well as other top jumper shows.
The NAJYRC has undergone mixed fortunes in recent years as it expanded to include several disciplines including reining as well as the original eventing championships.
“These championships are a very important part of the developmental pathway that USEF must prioritize,” said USEF President Murray Kessler. “For many young athletes, this is the first time that they will get championship experience or the opportunity to compete as part of a team representing their country, so these championships are a big deal. I am very proud of how everyone came together to give this event the importance that it deserves.”
