The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the athletes selected for the 2022 USEA Emerging Athlete 21 (EA21) program. Members of the USEA Young Rider program ages 21 and under are eligible for the program, which aims to create a pipeline for potential Team USA riders by identifying and developing young talent, improving horsemanship and skills riding, and training and improving skill and consistency.
