By joining British Dressage, you are entitled to ride at affiliated competitions. These are governed by British Dressage and must meet certain guidelines. This means that whatever affiliated event you attend it should be of a consistent and guaranteed standard, held at an approved venue and be judged consistently by a fully accredited British Dressage judge. More importantly, there’s a clear structure of classes to help you progress as far as you want to.
Perhaps you will qualify for the National Dressage Championships held in September at Stoneleigh Park, Warks, or the Winter Championships held in April at Hartpury College, Glos? In addition, you can aim for one of the prestigious Petplan Equine Area Festivals and maybe go through to the Petplan Equine Area Festival Championships.
Every affiliated outing you enjoy, you can also potentially increase your horse’s standing within dressage. Any horse registered with British Dressage can accumulate grading points, depending on the score he achieves, once competing at Novice level or above. By grading horses by their performances, British Dressage can ensure classes remain fair and competitive.
