Entries close the MONDAY prior to the specific competition. UNLESS the entries become full beforehand. So please enter early to avoid disappointment! 

Online entries close automatically, but we request that paper entries are made well in advance. 

If there is not the minimum of 11 tests entered, then the competition will be cancelled.

'Stressless' Dressage:

A relaxed spin on a normal dressage competition. Correct hats and footwear must be worn, but clothing and plaiting is your choice. Tack must still conform to the usual dressage rules i.e no boots in the ring and correct bits/bridles etc. 

Entry fee is £8.50 / class and the competition will start from 2pm.

We are hoping each member who enters will give a short time on the day to help run your competitions, giving the organisers chance to ride their own horses. Please let me know on your entry form if you are able to help.


Dressage Rules & Points

Dressage= Highest % wins.

Members will receive points for each competition attended, and rider points will be gained by using your % achieved in the class. SEE TABLE BELOW. We hope members will come and support it and see that 'Stressage' isn't so bad!
