FEATURING: The premier equestrian competition in North America for young riders, age 18-21.

Young equestrians from the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean Islands compete in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of Show Jumping, Dressage, and Eventing. The competition is run under rules of the FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale, the international governing body for equestrian sport). The NAYRC is also designated as an official USA Junior Olympics–Equestrian event.

Many of the world's best equestrians got their start at the NAYRC including Olympic Medalists Greg Best and Karen Lende O'Connor.

History: The NAYRC began in 1974 as an eventing challenge between the United States and Canada.

A Dressage Championship was added in 1981, and Show Jumping was added in 1982. The first complete NAYRC was held in British Columbia, Canada in 1982. The NAYRC was first held at Tempel Farms in 1985. The 2002 Championships will mark the 14th time Tempel Farms has hosted the event.
