British Dressage thanks the Ideal Saddle Company for their generous support of the Combined Training Series and Championship. 

Championships Ambassador Hayley Watson-Greaves highly recommends having a go at this amazing series:

"I love the combination of dressage and jumping, with horses showing their versatility across both disciplines. I think the series is great for the sport of dressage as it will help to widen its appeal to the jumping crowd. I train a lot of event riders during the winter and highly recommend combined training competitions as a great way for them to monitor their training progress over the winter months.”
