Young Rider Mentorship Program



The USEA Young Rider Mentorship Program affords Young Riders (21 years and younger) the opportunity to learn from experienced equine professionals to gain a better understanding of career paths, skill development, networking and goal setting for his/her future. 


  • Mentoring is a way for more experienced equine professionals to share their experience and knowledge with Young Rider protégés.

  • A successful mentoring partnership benefits those involved through increased confidence and a sense of direction.

  • The mentoring partnership requires honesty, openness, commitment and effort.

  • The YR Mentorship Program is not a riding or in-saddle training program, but rather a way for youth to learn about what is involved in a career in horses.
