Beginning in 1984 as an idea on how to raise funds to send some local kids to the North American Young Rider Championships, the annual Area VII Young Rider Benefit Horse Trial has become one of Area VII’s most anticipated events. 

Today this event is the primary fundraiser for the Area VII Young Riders program. The dollars raised at this event are used to support: our clinics, camps and sending teams to the North American Junior Young Rider Championships as well as support our Team Challenge Event.
