Stotts Hill Frankston Sth announced as Naming Rights sponsor for the Australian Youth Dressage Championships

The Australian Youth Dressage Championships is very pleased to announce that the naming rights sponsor for the 2022 event will be Stotts Hill Frankston Sth, an exciting new land estate development details of which will be released very soon.

Pask was enthusiastic to announce the association,  “Stotts Hill Frankston Sth is proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the 2022 Australian Youth Dressage Championships.  Creating places for generations for over 50 years, the project’s developer Pask acknowledges the significance of this event within the local community and the opportunity that it provides for young riders.”

Representing the 2022 AYDC Organising Committee, Jan Smith commented, “We are very excited to be working with Stotts Hill Frankston Sth and look forward to a very successful event which is the showcase Championships for young dressage riders”.

There will be an Interschools Championships sponsored by Toorak College together with Participation classes designed to encourage riders wanting to take part but without the necessary experience or performances.   Competitors of all levels will be able to mix and enjoy the sport.  Combine this with the attractions of the Mornington Peninsula in summer, and it makes for a great experience for all the family.

The Australian Youth Dressage Championships has traditionally offered the FEI tests for Ponies, Junior Riders, Young Riders and Under 25 Grand Prix. In 2022 the FEI Children’s Tests will also be offered for the first time.   For 12-14 years old riders, these tests are 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.

Entries have just closed with around two hundred riders competing in nearly eight hundred tests over the four days. The committee is also thrilled that the support of sponsors has reached a new high, and are also grateful to the Victorian Government for their support under the Significant Sporting Events Program.
