JR / Young Rider Program

KYB Dressage and Grand Prix Equestrian are united in their desire to help promote and teach competition dressage to Young Riders around the country. Each year KYB will select a few qualified and ambitious young riders to become part of the KYB Team and learnto show at the FEI levels.

Our hope is that Young Riders who would like to pursue dressage as their career will find the necessary experience working in our environment that may eventually help them to create a future for themselves in our sport.Whenever possible a worthy competition horse will be provided and the rider will have the opportunity to try and qualify for the North American Young Rider Championships if they are ready. In return the rider will work as an apprentice for KYB Dressage and learn what it would be like to be a trainer in a busy competition and training facility.

If you or someone you know deserves an opportunity like this please contact Yvonne Barteau at kybdressage@aol.com to explain why.
