2023 Stable Ground Victorian Youth Dressage Championships




Stable Ground announced as Naming Rights sponsor for the Victorian Youth
Dressage Championships 12-15 January 2023.

Equestrian Victoria and the Victorian Youth Dressage Championships are very pleased to announce that the naming rights sponsor for the 2023 event will be the Riddells Creek based civil engineering company Stable Ground. Director Adrian Veneziano was very pleased to announce the partnership as the core business of Stable Ground is the design and development of equestrian arenas. “Stable Ground is proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the 2023 Victorian Youth Dressage Championships. We have been involved as a sponsor of the event for several years so it was a natural progression to step up to the naming rights level. We aim to provide the very best possible environment for riders to train their horses by establishing arenas and work areas from the ground up to a surface that is world class.”

Representing the 2023 VYDC Organising Committee, Jan Smith commented, “We are very excited and grateful to be working with Stable Ground and look forward to another successful event which is the showcase Championships for young dressage riders”.

A wide range of tests will be offered at the event, from Interschools Championships sponsored by Toorak College right up to the highest level, the Grand Prix. Competitors of all levels will be able to mix and enjoy the sport.

The event will be held at Boneo Park, an international venue with top
class facilities. Combine this with the attractions of the Mornington Peninsula in summer, and it makes for a great experience for all the family.
The Victorian Youth Dressage Championships has traditionally offered the FEI tests for Ponies, Junior Riders, Young Riders and Under 25 Grand Prix and will also include the FEI Children’s Tests that are for 12-14 years old riders, with tests designed to assist the rider with an emphasis on the
quality of riding as well as the technical aspects of the tests. All the FEI tests are well crafted and the event has given riders the confidence to go on and compete in these tests at International level.

The event has attracted a very generous level of sponsorship from a wide range of businesses and there will be an attractive trade village at the event. Entries close 20 December 2022.
