Young Riders: Sponsored by Meadowthorpe Farm, offering lessons, horsemanship education, events and boarding. Nominate an outstanding Young Rider to be recognized.
Mid-south Horse Review is excited to announce a new monthly recognition program honoring our mid-south young riders. We are calling for nominations for young boys and girls between the ages of 12- 18. Young riders who live in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, North Alabama, Kentucky and Southeast Missouri are eligible as a Young Rider honoree.
MSHR's new recognition program is dedicated to honoring young equestrians in our mid-south communities. A "Young Rider" is a young male or female rider who exemplify excellence in equestrian sports, both non-competitively and competitively. A Young Rider is one who thrives and excels in daily horse life and horse care management, as well as positive sportsmanlike traits that include inclusive and welcoming behaviors to other riders in his or her barn, riding school or show region. MSHR is looking to recognize young riders who go above and beyond in the barn with horses, trainers/ instructors, barnmates, and competitors.
Riding school instructors, trainers, and parents can nominate riders of any discipline between the ages of 12 and 18 who have been riding for at least two full years. Young Riders will be recognized in print and online every month throughout the year. A testimonial/ recommendation letter must be written and submitted by a parent, horse trainer/ instructor, or barn manager that addresses why the young rider should be recognized. Selected Young Riders will need to answer a questionnaire to complete his or her selection process. Young Riders will be selected monthly and parents and trainers will be notified of their recognition. To nominate a mid-south Young Rider please click the nomination button below.
