Old Salem Farm sits on 125 acres in the rolling hills of North Salem, N.Y. and hosts competitions such as the American Gold Cup CSI4*-W and the Old Salem Spring shows.

“These championships are a very important part of the developmental pathway that USEF must prioritize. For many young athletes, this is the first time that they will get championship experience or the opportunity to compete as part of a team representing their country, so these championships are a big deal. I am very proud of how everyone came together to give this event the importance that it deserves,” said USEF President Murray Kessler.
