The dressage selection committee Swiss Equestrian Federation has announced the youth dressage squads for the 2020 show season. 

Each year the level of competition and the size of the entry fields gets bigger. Swiss Youth Team Trainer Heidi Bemelmans is optimistic about the future. 

The goal for 2020 will be like before, finding connection with the high international level and send promising combinations to the Youth Championships for Children, Pony, Junior and Young Riders, ideally each time with a team of four combinations," Bemelmans commented. "It will certainly be a challenge to achieve this."

In 2019 Switzerland was only able to send one team, a junior riders' team, to the 2019 European Youth Riders Championships, but this team achieved a wonderful fourth place. "This was a great achievement of which we can be proud," Bemelmans stated. 

The Swiss Youth Squads for 2020 include:

Pony Riders - A-team

  • Valentina Bona
  • Robynne Graf
  • Layla Schmid

Junior Riders - A-team

  • Tallulah Lynn Nater
  • Renée Stadler
