I applied earlier in the year to be part of this group and I am over the moon to be a part of it having already attended the first meeting.
The idea of this group is to ensure youth member have a voice in equestrian governance and decision making.
The BEF Youth Action Group is being set up to allow the Member Bodies to engage with young people from a variety of different Equestrian sports and backgrounds. It will be a sounding board for new initiatives as well as improving current procedures. The group will be given specific objectives and will need to work together as a team to meet them.
I will be keeping you up to date with topics discussed and will be asking your opinions on the current youth programs to gather feedback in order to send back your ideas on how we can change things for the better.
Quote from myself on why I wanted to join the group " I feel I can relate to other people who haven't had an instant route into the sport or who juggle their main passion with a full time job like myself. I have a strong interest in promoting the sport of Eventing and interacting with people via social media. I am looking forward to listening and putting others as well as my own opinions forward and making a difference in the sport in order to take it forward."
