YOUNG EQUESTRIAN LEADERS AWARD (YELA) For 13-25 year olds

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.

To register with the Award candidates need to register online or complete an application form and return it to the YELA Office. Application forms can be found on the YELA website. Once received we will send out a logbook and candidates can begin logging hours spent volunteering at BEF Member Bodies and Events (volunteering at Hope Valley Riding Club events will count towards these awards).
