National and Winter Championships
The pinnacle in the BD calendar, the LeMieux National Dressage Championships and the NAF Five Star Winter Championships provide an exciting conclusion to the winter and summer competition seasons.
The LeMieux National Dressage Championships
The summer season comes to a dramatic close at the flagship event in the BD collection, with the battle for the LeMieux National Dressage Champion title the highlight of four days of world class dressage.
From Prelim Silver to Grand Prix, 25 titles are awarded throughout the week to those who seek to add their names to the history books. Many famous faces have taken National titles over the years and each September, spectators gather to enjoy this exhilarating event.
The Equissage Pulse Para Gold Championships and Shearwater Young Dressage Horse Championships are two further elements hotly anticipated by championship regulars who are treated to appearances from Team GBR stars current and future in both classes.
The NAF Five Star Winter Dressage Championships
Taking place at Hartpury College each Easter, the NAF Five Star Winter Dressage Championships is the largest gathering of dressage combinations under one roof and celebrates all levels of competitor.
With the Winter Championships and Petplan Equine Winter Area Festivals coming together at this standout equestrian fixture, the culmination of six months qualification and eight Winter Regional Championships do not disappoint. Five non-stop days of competition are topped by two glittering gala evening performances where the Magic Prix St Georges and Superflex Intermediate I Supreme Champions are crowned after two freestyle finals, supported by exhilarating entertainment and an educational master class.
Qualification for both the National and Winter Championships can be obtained through the Regional Championships, or for the Nationals only, from direct qualifier classes held at the eight Premier League shows.
