Yent???

I am obsessed with Canterwood Crest (well, at least the first six books. After that it becomes less and less about horses =/) and the main character made the YENT (Youth Equestrian Nationals Team), a pre-Olympic like team that would one day (hopefully) lead to the USET. Did the author make up this team or is it real? I looked it up and I found a couple things but IDK if they're true! If it is real, is there a summer training camp and all that?
Thanks!

I love those books too, I am waiting for #16 to come out, but I don't know if Jess made up the team or not...

I'm not positive but I'm thinking it's "made up" to some extent. I can't find anything on the USEF page. Youth

I did however see that Australia has an elite team that looks like it might be a version of it.

I'm thinking its similar to the Young Riders team. I don't know if the US has it but Canada does.

Thanks guys!!! I really prefer Sasha over Lauren but I don't hate Lauren or anything. I just wish it was a little more about horses and riding vs boy drama!!

US has young riders! I haven't read the booms but that was my first thought too when I read this post.
