LVDA Youth Sponsorship Program

This year we are asking our sponsors to tell us if they would like to see a specific program benefit from their funds, or if we are free to use the funds where they are needed to cover the costs of routine expenses.

With the funds raised through the youth program sponsorships, the LVDA Youth Development Program is able to:

  • Offer reduced fees for guest clinicians and lecturers

  • Cover facility rental fees and insurance costs for youth events

  • Provide food and drinks for youth events

  • Reimburse youth members for entry fees and/or stall fees at team competitions.

  • Purchase supplies to operate the youth program and pay miscellaneous operating expenses

  • Grant youth scholarships to participate in activities appropriate to their current level. All LVDA youth members are eligible for these scholarships. 

  • Purchase year-end awards for LVDA Youth Members

Where we need help 


General Club Funding 

Our organization requires general funds for operating costs and to support club programs at the discretion of the Board.
These funds will support:

  • Scholarships for riders to participate in clinics, as well as larger grants for more concentrated training 

  • Unmounted educational opportunities 

  • Year-End awards to celebrate the achievements of our members 

  • General operating expenses for the club.


Youth Development Program 

The youth program was created in 2018 and has been growing rapidly. Our youth members are the future of the discipline and our organization.


We are constantly changing and tailoring the program to meet the needs of our youth members by providing: 

  • Educational and social events including lectures and demonstrations.

  • Subsidized youth entries for clinics

  • Support for youth team participation at regional opportunities

  • Scholarship monies for active participants.

  • A voice to the regional and national bodies for youth in dressage.


We encourage volunteerism and sportsmanship among our youth members to help them become active citizens as they reach adulthood. 


Recognized Show 

Each year we are delighted to host our nationally-recognized show at the Bucks County Horse Park. This event alone brings 50-100 riders from the tri-state area and beyond in addition to their teams of grooms, owners, trainers, and friends. This show serves as one of the best advertising opportunities for our sponsors due to its size and exposure to riders outside of our membership. 

Adult Team 

The club works to send a group or two of adults to one of two (sometimes both) team opportunities each year. The riders work to qualify by showing and volunteering during the year, and the events are held in October at the Bucks County Horse Park and November in Maryland. Fundraising goes toward the cost of team gear and entries and includes donations as well as proceeds from the Silent Auction the teams host during the Recognized show in August.
