Great 2017 for Spanish Dressage in the Youth Divisions

Spanish youth team trainer Nicky Barrett is thrilled with the results her riders have achieved at the European Championships and Nationals this year.

"For the first time there is depth behind the four team riders in Juniors," Barrett told Eurodressage. "The majority of which will move up to Young Riders next year. There is a much clearer understanding of both trainers and riders of how to develop the horses. The quality of riding and influence has changed greatly, which is why they have achieved the medals the last few years. I am very pleased to have been involved with Spain to help them in a small way achieve this and grateful to all that have followed the suggestions which I appreciate isn't always easy."

Barrett's contract as youth team trainer is up for negotiation in 2018 so the British coach is not yet sure of her future in Spain. She is, however, excited about the progress that has been made. 

"As for 2018, I don't yet know if my contract will be renewed," she explained. "There are many changes being made. Either way I would say that Spanish Youth Riders will continue to go from strength to strength."
