We run a full calendar of open dressage competitions throughout the year. Our classes range from Intro through to Medium, as well as Dressage to Music (also Intro through to Medium!) Our open Summer series of competitions run from October to August, with a Championship show in September.
Throughout these competitions, members’ scores and placings are tallied in our Members Points System, which are added up during the year. These are then put forward to earn prizes and trophies to be presented at our AGM.
In addition to these individual competitions we send riding teams to compete against other riding clubs in regional competitions. These teams are made up of four horse and rider combinations, with the three best scores from each team being put forward. We can send either qualifying or non-qualifying teams to these competitions, so they are friendly, low-pressure and open to all members who would like to have a go.
If you are interested in being in a dressage team please contact Anne Kendell at 07889479745 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
