2018 Youth Information


Hello,  if you are interested in becoming a part of North River Riders Paris Youth Team here is some more information to get you ready for the upcoming show season. 


We are looking for English and/or Western riders to be a part of our youth team to go down and compete at the Paris Youth Tournament. We are looking for NRR Youth with positive attitudes, good horsemanship skills and people who want to make new horse friends in the community. We are looking for 6-12 enthusiastic riders in any of the categories below: (feel free to circle the classes you would be interested in competing in)


Showmanship                                                   Barrel racing

Pole bending                                                     Stake race

Trail                                                                        Western pleasure

Western horsemanship  


English equitation                                            English pleasure

Hunter hack

(The classes above are all open classes the ones below have age groups)

English or Western:

Leadline (ages 4-8)                                          Walk jog (12 & under)

We are not looking for the best or fastest or the most beautiful horse we want people who best represent our club. All we want from this competition is for you to learn more and have A LOT OF FUN!!!!

Some factors that will help us choose our team members:

  1. We have made an application form (see link for application below)for you to fill out to tell us about yourself, your horse and equine activities. Including a small 250 word paragraph (if under the age of 8 you can write a minimum 3 sentences) with why you would make a good candidate for our team this could include your previous history with riding, your accomplishments, ideas for fundraising and other things you could bring to the team, as well as a photo of you and your horse.
  2. You will have to be a NRR member and have to participate in at least 2 NRR shows English/Performance shows are May 12, June 9 2018
    Western Games shows are May 13, June 10, July 14 2018
  3. You will be required to participate in all the fundraising for the youth team (seeing as all the money is going towards team jackets, stable blankets and extra expenses to do with the trip)
  4. Once the June shows are over the youth executive will meet and decide whom the members will be representing NRR at Paris youth tournament soon after the team will be notified.
  5. Once the team is decided we will be trying to get the team together every month to do some team building activities (including trail rides, movie night, horse play day and other fun activities) so that when we show up at the tournament we are not just a team we are a North River Riders family.
  6. A payment of $75.00 is to be submitted with the application if your horse requires a stall for the duration of the weekend at the Paris Fairgrounds.
  7. Application deadline is June 11 2018
  8. Please make yourself familiar with OSCYTT Rules!

    I, ___________________________, understand fully and will complete the above requirements to be eligible to represent North River Riders at the Ontario Saddle Club Youth Team Tournament in Paris, ON. I will demonstrate leadership, kindness and good horsemanship. Any negative behavior towards another competitor, parent or horse will be asked to withdraw their place from the team.
