LVDA Youth Development Program
The LVDA created a Youth Development Program in 2018. This program is designed to provide education, training and competition opportunities for our young riders under the age of 22, in the sport of dressage. The program will include Youth Clinics/Lectures, Youth Fix-a-Tests, separate Youth Ribbons & Awards at Schooling and Recognized Shows, Youth Year-End Awards at our Year-End Awards Banquet, Youth Team Competitions and Youth Scholarship opportunities.

The LVDA Youth Program is looking for LVDA Youth Members who are interested in being part of our LVDA Youth Team for entering in various Youth Team Competitions. Teams for first team event have been formed. The Youth Team Interest Form is now open for anyone interested in joining a youth team for the 2019 Region 1 Team event to be held in October at the Horse Park of NJ.
LVDA Youth Scholarship Fund
The LVDA Youth Development Program is proud to announce a new program for 2019 which will allow youth members to “Build Your Own” Youth Scholarship. Funds may be used for dressage opportunities of your choosing (clinics, show fees, team competitions, etc). Read More on Youth Scholarship Fund

The LVDA would love to see our Youth participating in our Volunteer Program and acquire volunteer hours to qualify them for our Year End Awards. They do not have to know how to perform all of the various volunteering position duties to be able to volunteer! LVDA will teach them via our "Shadow" volunteer option. Want to learn how to be a Scribe or Scorer or Steward? Our youth can volunteer for those positions as a "Shadow" and work along side one of our experienced volunteers to watch and learn.
