The goal of the CDS Junior/Young Rider Clinics is to provide an opportunity for juniors/young riders to receive instruction from clinicians who might not otherwise be available to them and to create comradery among fellow dressage youth riders.. Every effort is made to select clinicians who can effectively teach lower level as well as upper level riders. The Clinic consists of an evening lecture followed by two full days of riding clinic. Procedures for Chapters to Reserve Clinic Space - To reserve a Chapter’s space in the clinic the Chapter Chair or Chapter Treasurer is required to send a check for $150.00 to the Central Office. - Any vacant spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis from the waiting list by the Clinic Organizer. - Any Chapter or individual can place a name or request to be on the waiting list. Rider Eligibility and Selection - Riders must be members in good standing of CDS and be under 22 years of age. Chapter’s Selection Procedures - Chapter selection is done by draw. Chapters should select their representative plus 1 to 2 alternates.
