2023 marks the 9th edition of The Young Riders Academy, with Peelbergen as its selected venue for the third year in a row.
“We feel very honoured and privileged Young Riders Academy chose our venue for their selection. After a few editions, they believe this concept suits them perfectly and we do our utmost best to create the ideal circumstances for their selections and clinics.”
– Ken Ruysen, managing director of Peelbergen about the collaboration with YRA.
Young Riders Academy Selections
At the beginning of this month, twenty-five talented riders, representing fourteen nations, gathered on our show grounds for two days of selections to determine the Young Riders Academy 2023 team.
Candidates have been interviewed and assessed by the Young Riders Academy panel, “The level of the athletes was unquestionably high again, and the performances had been impressive” say panel members Thierry Pomel, Otto Becker, and Emile Hendrix.
The nominations for YRA team ’23 will be announced by the end of the month, with the first clinic taking place in Peelbergen on 17th / 19th april.
What does the future hold for YRA and Peelbergen?
The purpose of YRA is and remains to assist in training show jumping young talents and preparing their career as future professionals in this sport. Peelbergen is honoured to partner up with YRA to help in this mission and see these young riders develop into the top riders of the future.
“We see both the level of the riders and the professionalism of the YRA Family growing every year. We feel and believe that the support their program offers to the riders, really makes the difference for their future career. I have incredible appreciation and respect for the YRA and believe the best is yet to come for them.
We hope to stay the home base for their selections and clinics in the future and try to support the YRA Family in any way possible!”
We take this opportunity to thank The Young Riders Academy for their outstanding work and wish all the riders good luck.
