Sugarloaf Cobbitty Equestrian Club would like to wish our sponsored Young Riders: Emma Cox, Kate Worsnop, Paris Kellner and Sophie Artup all the very best for the upcoming Young Rider’s Championships.  We are proud of your achievements  to date and trust you will have a wonderful competition.

Watch this space for details.

Please contact Kate if you have any queries regarding YR, or if you have news to share. We would love to hear from you.

Young riders (YR’s) are very important to our club as they are the future in dressage competitors the rising star’s, and maybe a future committee member.

A YR is a rider who is under the age of 21.  Should you turn 21 during the year, you are considered a YR till the end of the calendar year.Consideration of performance is viewed from our February competition up to the following December competition.

Dressage classes are run specifically for young riders. These are unofficial/unrestricted classes with ribbons awarded as encouragement. Scores from these classes don’t contribute to the Horse of the year (HOTY) or Pony of the Year Points (POTY). At the end of the year a Young rider of the year (YROTY) and a Reserve Young Rider of the Year (RYROTY) will be awarded based on accumulated points throughout the year.
Point score is allocated by adding all percentages gained through the year. Only the highest points from each dressage day and from one mount will be added. For example if you are riding two horses, Horse one achieves 65% and 55% and horse two scores 60% and 70%, horse two’s scores will be added to your YR points.

PLEASE NOTE: Young Riders are expected to volunteer at our competitions in order to be eligible for our YR of the Year Award, NOT just get family members to assist on their behalf.

What happens IF we get too many offers of help?
