Dressage & Combined Training - Members Only
Our members’ competitions are suitable for those who would like to have a go, up to our eager competitive champions.
The atmosphere is always friendly and supportive and yet the aim for best score remains.
Rosettes are from 1-6th place and split into Juniors and Seniors if there are 2 or more of each age group.
We run two types of competitions, Points League and Stressless , both are open to members and non-members.
Most competitions are run with the following order: Intros, P test, Novice test and then Pick Your Own from P, N or E tests. Results are published at the end of each class. Occasionally the riders may pick their times and results are published when the last one in a class has gone.
Closing Date is the Wednesday before the competition.
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.
IF EVERY ONE COVERED ONE EVENT, THEY ALL BE STRESS FREE!
The Points League:
The points are accumulated for your scores over the year (see points table/scores below) but it is run like a normal Dressage Competition. The points are as below -Please read the rules below!
