Young Rider Leaderboard

A leaderboard for young riders who are members of Dressage NSW was established in 2017.  Results from Official Competitive competitions held in NSW apply.  More details

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.
