Young Rider programs offers educational opportunities such as clinics and camps. The North American Junior and Young Rider Championship is a competition that attracts youth riders from Bermuda, Canada, Caribbean Island, Mexico, Puerto Rico and United States in show jumping, dressage, eventing and reining.
Young Rider programs are offered by associations such as the United States Dressage Federation and the United States Eventing Association and hold competitions specifically for those in their programs. For example the North American Young Riders Endurance Ride (NAYRER) is a competition for youth who compete in the sport of endurance riding. Young Riders competitions introduce youth riders to FEI governed competition.
