Welcome to BD Youth

If you’re between six and 25 years old, you can join in with the most successful equestrian sport of the modern era. BD Youth offers competitions, teams, training with top riders, prizes and camps to help you achieve your dreams. Wherever you live there’s a BD Youth group near you so taking part is easy, simple and fun!

And the best part is, you don't need to be a member of BD to have a taster of BD Youth but if after taster training sessions you'd like to continue with us, we'd love to have you as a member - join as a Club member and you can attend as many regional activities as you wish! At just £35 for the year, it's jam-packed with loads of great benefits. Click here to find out more.

Navigate your way around our BD Youth pages via the menu to the left. We've got sections dedicated to training, competing and more!

Essential Information

BD Youth covers all aspects of Under 25s training and competitions under the remit of the British Dressage Youth Committee. 

Joining British Dressage is an unmissable step forward in your journey to becoming the next Charlotte Dujardin or Carl Hester. For the majority of activities, unless otherwise stated, you must be a full member of British Dressage with a registered horse or pony.

Riders who want to take part in Regional Training sessions on a regular basis need to join British Dressage as a Club member. Ponies/horses do not need to be registered for Regional Training. Riders from 6 – 25 years will be welcome and encouraged to take part in Regional training. Club membership allows you to compete in Quest competitions too - find out more.

If you wish to take part in Regional Training and compete in affiliated dressage competitions or are chosen to compete for your region in competitions as part of a team, you will need to become a full member of British Dressage and register your pony/horse. Membership and Horse Registration with British Dressage is rolling – so will run for 12 months from the date of joining. Riders who are full members of British Dressage will not need to pay extra to take part in BD Youth Regional Training.
