Events Schedule - Summer 2019

Improvers Dressage Training Day

Sunday 26 May @ 11.30am - this fun, relaxed training day is aimed at Intro/Prelim/Novice level riders of all ages wishing to work on their test riding and improve their scores, along with their understanding of dressage as a discipline. It will include an on-foot morning instruction session on warming up effectively, achieving accuracy, correctly riding standard movements and more. A demo test will then be ridden by an experienced dressage competitor with commentary from our instructors; and after a short lunch break, riders will take part in a Have A Go dressage competition, where they will perform a test at either Intro or Prelim level, again with feedback given alongside their standard score sheet.
Tests will be:
BD Intro B (2009)
BD Prelim 12 (2005)
BD Novice 24 (2010)
Our on-site Nosebag Cafe will be open for lunch.
