2024 Young Rider Dream Program - Wellington

The Dressage Foundation's 2024 Young Rider Dream Program trip to Wellington, Florida, was held in January 2024. 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: Kylia Baker (CA), Caroline Colby (NH), Bella Perkins (NY), Chloe Roth (SC), and Katie Staib (PA). Learn more about the young riders.
