Everyone is welcome and in fact it is so friendly that families from out of the region travel to be part of what is on offer. The Eastern team prides itself on being open and friendly whilst offering the best support and knowledge. The fabulous Jessica Brown heads up the Youth team. The supportive, enthusiastic and motivational environment enables the children without dressage ponies to enjoy the sport whilst learning how to get the best from their much loved four legged friends. The BD Youth annual camps are fabulous events running in the spring and autumn, these bond all the riders and trainers and enables teams to be identified if riders want to be team riders. The energy and learning from the camp sets the goals for the year and drives success and development.
The BD Youth key dates are planned to help the children focus on developing their training so that they are fully prepared for affiliated competitions. There is also a complete understanding of the hands on role of the parent away from training. On these days the parents can watch their child's transformation under the guidance of a professional and then take on board the homework that their child needs to work on before the next training opportunity. At all times, it is low key, low pressure and fun. The aim of the day is for the children to follow the adults' lead so support for the parents is there at all times too, from each other as well as from the fabulous Katharine Perry. As everyone is a pony mum, empathy is the name of the game!
