**COVID-19 Statement** - 1st June
With the world slowly returning to a 'new normal' we are delighted to be continuing with our summer programme of events and our June/July/August events will now run as a Summer League! Please see the Summer League page for full details.
We have enjoyed through Demi Dressage giving your child something positive to focus on through this difficult time, with a great response to our new Groundwork Tests, which I hope you have enjoyed.
Whilst our planned Riding School classes will not be going ahead this year we welcome Riding School Riders of all abilities, and will revert to the 2019 scheme of offering a 'Special' rosette to the highest placed Riding School Rider in each class at each event.
We welcome all our new competitors alongside those who have been with us for some time, and hope you all stay safe xx
Demi Dressage – online competitions for young riders is an exciting new online dressage platform, exclusively for junior riders!
Building on the growing trend for online competition, Demi Dressage enables young riders to compete with ease from their own yard, by entering online, filming their test and uploading it to be judged at one of our regular competitions.
Any child up to and including the age of 16 can compete with Demi Dressage, making it ideal for children who share or loan a pony either privately or at a riding school as well as those with their own. The unique tests are designed and written to be child-friendly, with five colour-coded class levels Green to Red which cater for all abilities from those on the lead rein or just starting to ride independently in walk, to older and more experienced riders almost ready to progress to Pony Club or British Dressage Intro and Prelim tests.
All tests have a different theme and are written by Demi Dressage to provide a progressive system for young riders to develop their skills and confidence whilst also having fun! As well as standard dressage ‘school movements’, tests also include mounted exercises and occasionally the use of equipment or ‘props’ such as poles or cones to enhance enjoyment.
Online dressage with us has so much to offer – just some benefits include: Thoroughly inclusive – anyone, anywhere can have a go! No need for transport. No need for special show clothes. Compete with confidence from your own yard. Have your riding externally validated by an independent judge. Detailed feedback, and a rosette and sweets in the post!
