Riders are invited to compete from each province of Canada, USEF Zone (for show jumping), USDF Region (for dressage), and United States Eventing Association Area (for eventing), as well as from Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean Islands, and Bermuda via each country's national equestrian federation. The broad range of competitors attending the championships produces an Olympics-like atmosphere.
