an ambitious young competition team

The Opportunity

The Young Riders Academy is an exceptional opportunity for talented young riders aged 13 to 18 years to receive the support they need to fulfil their riding potential.  With a 21st Century learning program and relevant syllabus, The Young Riders Academy offers young people healthy challenges in a safe environment. 

The Academy is a boutique experience limited to 16 participants. 

The Riders

The Academy will be a fit for young people who are passionate about riding and who are prepared to face new challenges. They'll be hard workers who value learning, enjoy being part of a team and are confident in walk, trot and canter.  They'll be excited by new experiences, come to us open to new ideas and will be prepared to make the Academy a priority.  

The Program

Each rider will train twice a week in a group of up to four.  One training session (weekend) will be 3 hours and the other (weeknight) 90 minutes.  Each training session will be tailor made for the needs of riders in the group. Young people may ride our horses, or their own, and will have have the opportunity to compete in the disciplines of their choice. The program will include special experiences with guest coaches and experts. 

Young riders will be placed into a group with other riders of a similar skill level.
