How To Enter
Entering is easy!
There is lots of information about Demi Dressage, including our Rider Levels, FAQs and our Rules, on our website and our Facebook page, but if you have never taken part in online dressage before we sell a useful ‘Welcome Pack‘ for just £3.50 (£6 for two sets of gifts if you have siblings) which contains extra hints and tips for you as well as welcome gifts for your child! Please email or message via our Facebook page to buy.
Our useful 'Welcome Pack' is available with a 'Test Entry' gift voucher if you wish to purchase it as a gift (£13 including one test entry fee)
CLASSES: Our standard dressage events offer five to seven classes to suit all levels of riders:
GREEN and GREEN Lead Rein (walk only, on or off Lead Rein – will be split if enough entries)
YELLOW and YELLOW Lead Rein plus *NEW* YELLOW Assisted (walk/simple trot, on or off Lead Rein or with assistance – will be split if enough entries)
YELLOW-PLUS (extended walk/trot)
BLUE (walk/trot/simple canter)
Please see our Rider Levels page for more information on the colour-coded levels.
In Spring and Autumn we run a Prix Caprilli (a dressage test with jumps in!) and these follow a slightly different format with just three classes:
GREEN (Walk/Trot Lead Rein)
YELLOW (Walk/Trot Off Lead)
RED (Walk/Trot/Canter - Off Lead)
NEW for 2020 - Dressage classes running alongside our Autumn Prix Caprilli!
All details, including the tests you need to ride, can be found on the Current Event page at the relevant times.
NEW Groundwork Tests: Starting in April 2020, we introduced our own very special Groundwork Tests. Entries for these are split by age. Details of these can be found on their own Groundwork Tests page.
BEFORE YOU ENTER – please read our RULES, in particular with regard to how to film your videos!
ENTERING: Choose your class based on the levels above – the test sheets for each event are available to download as a pdf on the Current Event page for Dressage tests, and the Groundwork Tests page for Groundwork.

Once you have entered, you will need to upload your video to us before the closing date. See the Uploading Your Video page for more help with this.
Please TITLE your video CLEARLY - Rider and Pony Name, the level / test they are doing. This is particularly important if you are sending us more than one video link e.g for two tests or if you have different riders/ponies.
RIDING SCHOOLS: We offer a discount on bulk entry fees for Riding School Riders*, as long as they are made together by a single representative from the Riding School. All sheets and rosettes will be posted to this single person who made the entries. Please email to register interest for your Riding School clients and to get your discount code.
*A 'riding school rider' is defined as a riding school client who has lessons (and competes) on a pony/horse that is not their own.
SUMMER LEAGUE*: All riders competing in any of our summer series (April to August) will automatically gain points towards our Summer League!
NEW for 2020 is our Riding Schools Summer League* - this will initially run as two levels - Green/Yellow combined, and Yellow-Plus/Blue combined. These will be split if there is enough interest!
*Please note due to the coronavirus lockdown, our standard Summer League is running from June to August, and we are not running our Riding School classes or Summer League in 2020. All monthly events will run as normal as a standalone event in their own right, and Riding School Riders are welcome to enter any of our normal classes - there is a Special rosette to the highest placed Riding School Rider is each class every month!
