The USDF Jr/YR Clinic Series is an educational opportunity for youth riders striving to compete at FEI levels. The goal of this series is to promote hardworking, talented youth riders who want to rise to the top of the discipline. These clinics are taught by top U.S. riders including George Williams and Anne Gribbons.

Each clinic includes two days of private lessons, theory sessions, and auditing. Riders must submit an online application and eight riders will be selected to participate. Riders should be 14-21 years of age. Riders ages 12-14 competing in FEI Pony classes may also apply. Consideration will also be given to U25 riders if space allows. Auditors of all ages are welcome.
