The first European Youth Team Cup took place in Mooslargue, France in 2005.

The idea was to bring national youth teams from FEQHA member states together to have fun and to compete in 8 performance disciplines riding horses brought to the show grounds by themselves.

The Youth Team Cup has since the start been organised every second year. In 2007 in Aarhus, Denmark, in 2009 in Bodiam, UK and in 2011 Lier, Belgium will be hosting both Youth and Amateurs in one integrated event.
