USDF FEI Youth Clinic Series
With funding support provided by The Dressage Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation

The USDF FEI Youth Clinic Series is an educational opportunity for youth riders striving to compete at FEI levels. The goal of this series is to promote hardworking, talented youth riders who want to rise to the top of the discipline. These clinics are taught by top U.S. riders including George Williams, Anne Gribbons, Lilo Fore and Sabine Schut-Kery.

Each clinic includes two days of private lessons, theory sessions, and auditing. Riders must submit an online application and eight riders will be selected to participate. Riders should be 12-21 years of age (competing in FEI Children, Junior, or Young Rider classes). Riders ages 12-14 competing in FEI Pony classes may also apply. Consideration will also be given to U25 riders if space allows.

Starting January 1, 2023, all youth and their designated chaperones may audit for free. Adult USDF members may audit for $20/per day and adult non-members may audit for $40/per day. Auditor registration is by walk-in only.
