Young Equestrian Leaders Award (YELA) is an award scheme for the British
Equestrian Federation (BEF) designed to recognise the time and effort young
volunteers give to equestrianism and shape their experience, so they become
equestrian leaders of the future.
YELA runs over three progressive levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Bronze
requires 20 hours of volunteering and introduces skills in responsibility,
organisation and communication—and Silver develops these further. The Gold Award
requires 120 hours of volunteering, encouraging leadership and the planning and
delivery of a specific project.
