Dressage – Competition Information
All dressage classes will be competitive and for over 18’s only. There will be only one league at each level.
Eight of the eleven competition scores will count towards the league but you must have attended at least four competitions over the year to qualify. If you win the dressage league at a particular level you are expected to move up to the next level. Only the first preliminary test counts towards the league. The annual dressage league runs from January until December each year and there are luxury rosettes to 6th place and trophies for the winners which are presented at the Annual General Meeting in February. Since January 2020, Clwyd Agricultural have kindly sponsored our dressage competitions.
No instructors, assistants or anyone dismounted are allowed within the warm up arena. No lunging is permitted and out of consideration for other riders, no coaching from the side-lines. Please note that only the competitor may ride/warm up the horse prior to competing. Entries close at 5pm the Wednesday preceding the competition. Only withdrawals before closing date will be refunded. Competition times will be available on the website by the Thursday evening.
All hay-nets to be given in trailer/box only and all droppings cleared. Test sheets are available to buy on the BD website.
