NORTHERN IRELAND YOUTH DRESSAGE

NORTHERN IRELAND YOUTH DRESSAGE HAS BEEN RUNNING SINCE 2012.

Run under the auspices of DRESSAGE IRELAND NORTHERN REGION, NIYD provides regular training at two venues; Alison Mastin Moore coaches at the Laurel View Equestrian Centre and Kirsty Jackson coaches at Gransha Equestrian Centre. 

Nicole Robinson is Northern regions Youth and Silver Spurs Training officer and can be contacted by Email : nicolerobinson@hotmail.co.uk

Our aim – to provide top rate education to both members and non-members of Dressage Ireland aged between 8 and 25.  Providing the rider can walk, trot and canter unaided they can join.

Our philosophy is based firstly on the welfare of the horse, then ensuring a welcoming environment to learn in with like-minded young riders.  Coaches are well qualified and up to date on CPD and child protection.

Some rider’s that joined NIYD in 2012 are still with us, others start at NIYD then move on to being coached by many of Irelands other highly experienced and qualified coaches.  Riders may be show jumpers, eventers or dressage based. Every rider and every pony/horse needs good basics.

Training is done either fortnightly or monthly in small groups at a similar level.  Whilst competition is not our top aim, most of our riders are competitive and we have seen quite a few NIYD faces make it up to Pony Club and Riding Club Championships, Home International or full International level.  If you keep improving you can get there.

Training dates for Laurel View are:

Mondays October 12th and 26th.

Mondays November 9th and 23rd.

Monday December 7th.
