LEXINGTON, Kentucky, May 21–Georgina Bloomberg’s Gotham North will be presenting sponsor of the Adequan® FEI North American Junior/Young Rider Championships for the fourth year in a row.

Georgina was a two-time gold medalist at the NAJYRC, winning individual gold in 2003 and team gold in 2002. She is a frequent member of U.S. teams competing internationally.

Since 1979, the championships have showcased riders between the ages of 14 and 21 competing in junior and young rider championships in dressage, eventing, jumping and reining. They will be held this year at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington July 28-Aug. 1.

“Being able to compete in the NAJYRC is still one of the most memorable and exciting experiences of my career in show jumping,” said Bloomberg, now 27 years old. “The championships provide a great learning experience for young riders to feel what it is like to represent your country, to ride on a team and to understand the pressures of a championship format. I hope that this program can go on throughout the years to nurture and provide the experience for many talented young riders.

“I believe it is one of the most important events held for equestrians on this continent and provides the experience for riders to go on to be successful at the higher levels – whatever their discipline.”
