FESTIVAL OF DRESSAGE
Sunday 3rd September, 2023
We will be saying goodbye to Summer with a full day of Stressless and Unaffiliated Dressage which will include a music class and PYO long arena with Sashes awarded tyo the winner of each class.
‘Stressless Dressage’ is a relaxed and informal environment for both horse and rider where competition dress is not required but can be worn if the rider chooses to. It is ideal for novice or young horses and riders or simply a mid-week warm up.
'Unaffiliated Dressage' is a great way to get started with competitive dressage and can also be used to prepare your horse for eventing or affiliated dressage competitions.
Due to the number of classes, we will be running them in order.
All classes £15 with rosettes from 2nd to 6th place and a Sash awarded to the winner.
Current standard and correctly fitting hats, gloves & footwear for riders is compulsory.
Appropriate tack for horses is a must, as per British Dressage rules.
