Attention young riders between the ages of 13 and 20. We are in the early planning stages of the AERC International Youth Exchange. We will be taking 4 young riders to a safe foreign country in 2019 to ride in a 50 mile endurance ride on borrowed horses. (Not FEI) We will make final plans on the destination soon. On recent trip 4 young riders went to Australia for a trip of a lifetime and now here is the opportunity you will not want to miss the chance to be selected. Most of the travel funds have been raised at this time.This is an educational and a fun adventure!
Qualifications in order to apply:

2. Must have ridden more than one horse in competition

This is still a pilot program of AERC. The funding has been obtained from the Gator Run Benefit rides, veterinarians who have worked these rides, silent auctions and also sponsors. If anyone would like to help out with funding please contact either the AERC Office or Connie Burns-Caudill. Looking forward to another exciting trip with our young riders. If you can't click on the link, call the AERC office and they will e-mail you the application. If you have already applied, I have it, no need to worry.
