Young Equestrian Leaders Award


Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials are supporting the Young Equestrian Leaders Award (YELA), an award scheme from the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) designed to recognise the time and effort young volunteers give to equestrianism and shape their experience, so they become equestrian leaders of the future.

YELA demonstrates commitment, leadership and responsibility and provides a great springboard to a whole host of fantastic experiences in equestrianism.  YELA may lead candidates down many different paths: coaching, horse care, fundraising, training and mentoring volunteers and much more besides.

YELA is a hugely rewarding experience, and through volunteering you’ll be able to help others enjoy equestrian sports and feel a great sense of achievement in return.

The time you spend volunteering on event can be used as hours towards either your bronze, silver and gold award, and can be signed off by the relevant Head of Department. 

If you’re aged between 13 and 25 and would like further information about the award and/or would like to apply please visit their website at HERE.
