Dressage Under 21s UK

A Friendly Unaffiliated Dressage Group

Training our Young Riders for the Future...

Welcome to Dressage U21s UK. A friendly, encouraging Dressage Group for all riders 21 years and under. We also welcome riders from 22 - 25 years as Associate Members. We are an independent unaffiliated Dressage Group and most of our activities happen in Central England. But we also have 2 satellite Groups, one in Angus, Scotland and a second covering Devon and Cornwall. Both are proving to be very active and we hope to encourage more.

One of the most popular events are the 2 day Camps held at the Unicorn Equestrian Centre, Glos. These are open to all up-to-date members and are with our fantastic Trainers, Olivia Oakeley and Samantha Thurman-Baker, former members who both train with Carl Hester and have competed up to Grand Prix. Alongside we have Diane Thurman-Baker who has a very helpful and patient way of training young horses and riders. She has been the main trainer of Samantha and Spring Pascal pictured who have qualified for the Inter II and GP at the BD Nationals 2016.

Riders from 8 years upwards may apply for a place. They will need to be confident at the level they apply for and able to cope with 2 days of very intensive training - with lots of fun too.

In early March we hope to run the 15th Open U21s Winter Dressage Championships at Bury Farm EC, in Bucks - near Leighton Buzzard with classes for all levels and Teams too. Log on regularly and you will see our new season programme evolve.
