The riders, all of which are under 18, have been selected as the best in their region to compete in a range of dressing, showjumping and cross country classes from Thursday 4th August to Sunday 7th August.
Catherine Sykes, Equine Event Coordinator at Bishop Burton College, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the International Youth Championships for the second year, especially as this year we can welcome spectators without COVID-19 restrictions.
“Our course designer, Joe Weller, has done a spectacular job at transforming our parkland ready for the event. The cross country competition on Saturday 6th August is sure to be a highlight.
“We’re especially excited that one of our own students - Lucy Proctor-Copeland – has been chosen to represent the north!"
An exciting opening ceremony, exclusively for riders and their family, will kick start the competition on Wednesday 3rd August. The ceremony will feature professional student rider Katharine Pickering, who has featured in productions such as Victoria and Wonder Woman 1984, as well as performing at events such as the Horse of the Year Show and Great Yorkshire Show.
Katharine’s performance will include liberty, where the horse has no tack, classical dressage with Grand Prix rider Edward Creamer, dare devil trick riding and even some fire.
