Youth Training Days
We aim to inspire youth to pursue their passion for better riding and horsemanship.
At Berry Riding Club we encourage our young riders to enjoy all equestrian sports connected with horses and riding, from the conventional disciplines of competition to the more recreational types of horse activities. Our main focus of Youth Training Days (YTDs) is riding instruction and fun.
