BYRDS Regional Riders
The BD Young Riders Dressage Scheme has been active for the past 10 years and aims to develop rider skills from the age of 6 through to 25 through regional and national training.
This year the Northern region has seen a number of riders who have come through the scheme from an early age move forwards in their dressage career.
Following recent viewing days the following riders from the region have been placed on the BEF Excel Talent Programme:
