Behind The Scenes - A Day of Rest at NAYJRC

Lexington Virginia – August 5, 2006 – The CN North American Junior and Young Riders’ Championship had a rest day as the riders prepared for the Individual Final.

The riders who qualified for the Individual Final took the day off, while the 1.30m and 1.40m Farewell Classes took center stage in the indoor arena. Most riders had a light flat in the cool morning hours, then found a way to “keep calm” for the rest of the day as they prepare for the early start on Sunday.

The NAJC course walk is at 7:00AM, and the (1.35m-1.40m) class begins at 7:45AM.

30 minutes after its completion, the walk for the NAYRC will begin.

The Medal ceremony will begin at 1:00PM.

A few little known facts about NAYJRC 2006

-Andre Dignelli made a bet with the girls of Zone 1 that he would wear an outfit of their choice to the Individual Final if they all went clean in the Team Final. Well guess what…watch out Andre, the girls have been working all day on your new duds. The girls promise some outrageous photos will come from this!

-Jack Nash from Zone 4 is the only rider that has come to NAYJRC from Tennessee. He has great team spirit, and actually allowed the girls on his team to paint his face orange and blue for a group picture. When I asked him the spelling of his name to publish with the photos, he replied “H a r d e n T o w e l l.”

-Some “new timers” to NAYJRC have done very well this year. Julianna Fischer (only fourteen years old) won the opening speed class, and put in a clear round in the team competition. Nicole Lakin and Catie Boone (Zone2/5) put in double clear rounds in the team final, as did Carolyn Kelly (Zone 2). It is the first year for all of theses girls.

-Some “old timers” came to watch, coach, and support the competitors. Georgina Bloomberg, a two time NAYR Gold Medalist, drove from Kentucky to root for her Zone 2 friends. Brianne Goutal, also with double Gold to her credit, came to watch her younger sister Clementine compete. Clementine said that, “It means a lot to me that the older and more experienced riders are here helping and encouraging us.”

Good luck to everyone in Individual Finals!
