HorseShow.com, a revolutionary online horse show network, announces the development of a complementary test ride judging service for all horses and riders qualified for the FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) to be held in Lexington, KY, July 27-31, 2011. Dressage riders who have qualified to represent their region at the NAJYRC will have the opportunity to submit videos of their Junior or Young Rider Team and Individual Tests, and receive complete score cards and comments via e-mail from FEI judge, Natalie Lamping. This free service is available until July 20 to help riders assess their readiness for the competition, fine-tune their skills, and receive expert feedback, all from the comfort of their home arena.
"Competing at the NAJYRC is a dream come true for so many of these young competitors," said Jeff Sloan, CEO and founder of HorseShow.com. "In support of these talented riders and horses, we want to give them every opportunity to succeed by offering our video judging service to help them prepare for this international event."
Each NAJYRC competitor who submits a video for review will receive a free embroidered saddle pad, compliments of HorseShow.com. In addition, dressage teams which submit videos from at least three team members will be eligible to win funding to help support their trip to the NAJYRC. A Junior team and a Young Rider team will be chosen from all submissions to each receive $2,500 to assist with travel expenses.
