Bowral Dressage Club Inc is committed to supporting our Young Riders and offers a number of initiatives to encourage them as they compete in the sport of dressage.
Young rider of the year award
This award is based on accumulated points scored throughout the year at BDC comps (be it official classes or closed unrestricted). Champion and reserve prizes to be awarded. The Club recognises the importance of good sportsmanship and volunteering and in order to qualify for the award the Young riders need to volunteer at the club for at least two events.
SPONSORED YOUNG RIDERS
In 2018 Bowral Dressage Club is working to send our young riders to the Youth Dressage Championships as a sponsored team. To be considered for selection young riders must apply in writing to the BDC committee (see below) and applications will be at the discretion of the committee. Applications close June 1. Applicants will be judged on the following criteria –
o Performance - both at BDC competitions and other EA events
o Assistance given to the club by way of volunteering
The sponsorship package could include contribution towards entry fees and club embroidered riding attire/equipment.
