LVDA Youth at the 2023 Youth Dressage Festival

2023 was a banner year for the LVDA Youth Teams! 

Four Youth teams represented LVDA at the Dressage4Kids Youth Dressage Festival at HITS on the Hudson Showgrounds in Saugerties, NY in August, 2023. 

LVDA recruited four teams from within LVDA. After soliciting all of the Youth Riders in the club, there were still open slots, so we were able to help out ESDCTA by taking one of their youth who didn't have a team!

LVDA Horsepower placed as the overall Champion team for the entire weekend (Division A) with team member Kaytlin Dietrich ending up on top as the Individual Overall Champion. Fabulous job, riders!

LVDA Team American Dreamers placed first in Division C, LVDA Team Freedom Belles placed fourth in Division C, and LVDA Team Ladies of Liberty placed sixth in Division C. 

2024 looks to be a great year for LVDA Youth! We will be sponsoring Teams to attend the Festival again this year, August 8-10, 2024.

If you're interested in being a part of this fun, dynamic group of kids, contact the Youth Chair, Chris Dickenson for more information!
