The International Federation of Equestrian Sport (FEI) has launched a Year of Youth to focus on young people in equestrian sport and find out their opinions.

Running until next August, the year-long celebration will culminate in the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.

The FEI has launched a website where it hopes young people will congregate and share their opinions.

FEI President Princess Haya, said: “Our goal for the Year of Youth is to ensure we hear the opinions of the competitors, grooms, fans, volunteers and support teams of all those aged 12 to 21 involved in equestrian sport in order to help us best shape and drive the sport in the future.”

The website, which the FEI is claiming will be unlike any other site online, will be a “hub for equestrians to share, learn and grow together.”
