February - Do You Want To Build A Snowman? Fun Dressage
Closing date Sunday 21st February
This fun dressage runs with eight classes catering for all abilities. Although these tests appear to have a frivolous theme, they are good tests of accuracy! We hope your children will enjoy riding them.
Classes are as follows:
GREEN and GREEN Lead Rein (walk only, on or off Lead Rein – will be combined if low entries)
YELLOW and YELLOW Lead Rein plus *NEW* YELLOW Assisted (walk/simple trot, on or off Lead Rein or with assistance* – will be combined if low entries)
YELLOW-PLUS (extended walk/trot)
BLUE (walk/trot/simple canter)
Please see our Rider Levels page for more information on our colour-coded levels.
Classes are open to all riders aged 16 and under, on any size horse or pony.
*Assistance - our new Yellow Assisted class allows a person in the arena with the rider for moral support. Leading (of any form, including walking just in front of the pony) is NOT allowed, and will be classed as Lead Rein. The person may however move around the arena as required.
NOTE: The sweets sent out for the Snowman tests are Kinder (chocolate) bars - please make a note with your entry if these are not suitable for your child and we can send Haribo instead!
