Clinics

Jr/YR Clinics
The USDF Junior/Young Rider Clinic Series with funding support from The Dressage Foundation, is held throughout the USDF regions for riders age 14 to 21 at any riding level and riders age 12-14, on ponies competing in FEI pony classes. Each two-day clinic includes private lessons with a top instructor and a lecture. These clinics provide a necessary stepping stone in the youth pipeline by including a ‘talent search’ element. Auditors of all levels of experience are encouraged to attend and gain insights from some of the top clinicians in the world. Learn more.

Youth Outreach Clinics
The Youth Outreach Clinics program is a new educational opportunity for our "grass roots" youth riders, and is held in conjunction with the USDF Jr/YR Clinic Series. The goal of this program is to introduce those USDF youth members who are dedicated dressage riders, but who have not yet entered the realm of FEI level competition or currently do not have an FEI level horse, to the USDF "youth pipeline" and the opportunities it offers.
