Young Equestrian Leaders Award

The Young Equestrian Leaders Award (YELA) is an award scheme for 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 runs over three progressive levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.  Bronze requires 20 hours of volunteering and introduces skills in responsibility, organisation and communication—and Silver develops these further.  The Gold Award requires 120 hours of volunteering, encouraging leadership and the planning and delivery of a specific project.

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.
