2022 Young Rider Dream Program - Wellington

The Dressage Foundation's 2022 Young Rider International Dream Program trip to Wellington, Florida, was held in March 2022. Thanks to generous donors, the Dream Program was a fully-funded opportunity for riders ages 18-22 years old, riding 3rd Level and above, who have never trained or competed in Wellington. The five Young Rider participants were: Alanna Bent (SC), Mikaela Kuiper (WA), Emily Smith (CA), Haley Smith (CA), and Ruby Tevis (KY).

During their week in Wellington, TDF’s Dream Program group had the opportunity to meet with some of the top riders, coaches, and judges in the world, as well as attend competitions at Adequan Global Dressage Festival.
