DNSW Clarendon Young Rider Recognition

With the change to the age requirements for the national Adult Amateur Owner/Rider Scheme riders under 21 are no longer eligible to compete as part of the AOR Scheme.

To encourage, support and recognise riders under 21 years, Dressage NSW has a Clarendon Young Rider Leaderboard similar to the Clarendon Adult Amateur Rider Scheme.
