Young Ambassador 2021

The award is aimed at recognising athletes aged between 16 – 21 (14 – 21 Show Horse) who demonstrates outstanding sportsmanship, performance, contribution to sport and leadership qualities in their chosen discipline.

It highlights the importance of being more than just a winner, with the shortlisted Top 10 finalists attending a specialised training weekend catering to the professional and personal development of the riders.
The Young Ambassador of the Year Top 10 Finalist weekend is one which all our Junior and Young Rider members look towards on their Equestrian Calendar.

The Top 10 Finalist Weekend is a showcase for all four disciplines (Dressage, Eventing, Jumping and Show Horse), attended by the 10 finalists to determine the Top 3 shortlisted nominees. The Top 3 nominees will then be invited to attend an interview with the selectors which will determine the Discipline Young Ambassador Awardee for 2021.
