August is Youth Month on YourDressage! From stories about remarkable young dressage enthusiasts across the country to articles about some of the opportunities USDF offers to youth riders, join us all month long as we celebrate equestrians aged 25 and under. They are the future of our sport!

We recently asked our youth social media followers to share photos of them with their favorite horses, and to let us know why they love the sport of dressage.  Here, in Part 2, we proudly present a full gallery of photos they shared.

If you’re a junior, young rider, or young adult equestrian, let us know what you love about dressage and send us a photo at yourdressage@gmail.com for your chance to be featured in an upcoming photo gallery. We will also be looking for stories from youth riders across the US to share all August long.
