April - Smarties Easter Circles Dressage!
Closing date Sunday 25th April
We're full into spring now, and our Smarties Easter Circles test is a lovely way to kick-start your dressage summer season. These child-friendly tests focus on one of the most important dressage movements - the humble circle.
We'd love it if you get in the Easter spirit and dress up for this event - there will be some special rosettes for the best 'Easter Bonnet' (your riding hat must still be worn) - if it is hard to see in your video, you can send a photo of your decorated hat with your entry.
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)
Rosettes 1st to 6th in each class.
*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.
Please see our Rider Levels page for more information on our colour-coded levels.
All Classes are open to all riders aged 16 and under, on any size horse or pony.
OVERSEAS COMPETITORS - please note that you will need to add and pay for the Overseas Postage option to accompany your Dressage Test Entries if you wish to have your test sheet and rosette posted out (if you do not pay for this, a copy of your test sheet will be emailed to you, so please make sure we have a correct email address with your entry)
