The 2019 Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show will host a reining team event on August 3. Level 3 reining exhibitors are automatically entered into a Ford Youth World reining team competition, which is held concurrently with the Level 3 prelims on August 3 in the Performance Arena. A random draw will divide the entries into five-person teams.

When Ford Youth World exhibitors ride in the Level 3 reining prelims, they will be riding for their spot in the class’ finals, but also for a gold medal in the team competition.

At the conclusion of the Level 3 reining prelims on August 3, each team’s low score will be dropped and the top three teams with the highest composite score will be presented awards in the Performance Arena. Then on August 5, footage of the team awards presentation will be broadcast on the big screen in the Jim Norick Arena before the reining finals awards ceremony.

The 2019 FEI Junior and Young Rider Reining World Championships is where equestrians, ages 14 to 21, will represent their home countries as they vie for team and individual FEI medals. For more information on the FEI Junior and Young Rider Reining World Championships, visit www.youngriders.org.
