The U25 (or Under 25) division offers an increasingly important way for athletes between the ages of 16 and 25 (FEI age) to bridge the gap between the Junior Jumpers and the Grand Prix level. The annual USEF U25 Show Jumping National Championship provide an opportunity for the best of these athletes to compete head-to-head in a challenging competition format similar to that for senior athletes. The Championship is held over four days of competition beginning with a Speed competition on the first day, followed by a Jump Off class on the second day, a rest day, and finally concluding with a Two Round final competition. Fence heights will be up to 1.50m.
The 2018 USEF U25 Show Jumping National Championship will be held at the Holiday and Horses show in Wellington, FL November 27-December 2, 2018. A total of 40 athletes will be accepted. One horse per athlete. The athlete qualifies, not the horse/athlete combination. Athletes will be accepted based on the USEF U25 Rider Ranking List dated October 27, 2018.
An athlete may compete as a U25 Rider from the beginning of the year in which he reaches the age of 16 until the end of the calendar year in which he reaches the age of 25. For 2018, this includes riders born in the years of 1993-2002.
