Youth Outreach Clinics

The Youth Outreach Clinics are a new educational opportunity for our "grass roots" youth riders. The goal of these clinics is to introduce youth members, who are dedicated dressage riders, to the USDF "youth pipeline" and the opportunities it offers. Interested youth may apply as a rider or attend as an auditor.

Each of these clinics will be held over two days, and will include a variety of instruction each day including a 45-minute session with the instructor, a lunchtime lecture and interactive discussion, and an evening get together. Interested riders must submit an online application; 8-10 riders will be selected to participate. Riders must be 10-21 years of age, and must be able to complete a Training Level test.

All youth and their designated chaperones may audit for free. Adult USDF members may audit for $20/per day and adult non-members may audit for $40/per day. Auditor registration is by walk-in only.

Youth are also encouraged to take advantage of an additional educational opportunity by attending a USDF FEI Youth Clinic as an auditor.  For more information on the USDF FEI Youth Clinic Series click here.
