2020 National Equitation Championships CANCELED

Due to the increasing seriousness of the (COVID-19) pandemic and increasing governmental regulations regarding sporting event attendance the American National Riding Commission (ANRC) Board of Directors has  made the decision to cancel the 2020 ANRC National Equitation Championships. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide an update regarding plans for a rescheduled championship.

Check back on this page for future announcements. We hope you stay safe and that we will see you at the upcoming event!

ANRC Championships Overview

The ANRC National Equitation Championships are an invitational competition for collegiate, junior, adult amateur, and ANRC alumni teams that pay an annual ANRC team membership fee. There is no need to qualify.

The ANRC National Equitation Championships are traditionally held on the second or third week in April. The championship for each group is held on the same weekend and judged separately. In each championship, teams may compete in a 3′ National Division or a 2’6″ Novice Division. Participants may compete on a school-owned horse, a leased horse, or a privately owned horse.
