British Dressage is delighted to announce a new date for the Petplan Equine Area Festival which was cancelled following a confirmed case of strangles at Rockrose Equestrian Sport Centre. The fixture will now run 28 – 29 July 2018.

The organising team will transfer any existing entries over to the July date for competitors or you can withdraw and a full refund will be processed. It would be appreciated if anyone who doesn’t wish to be moved to the new date could withdraw as quickly as possible. 

Rockrose will happily take entries from new competitors and riders in the region now have until 23 June to complete their qualification as entries close on 7 July. 


BD RDO Scotland Emma Stewart said; “It’s great we can get a date rearranged so quickly. Huge thanks to James and his team under tricky circumstances plus the BD office for moving quickly. I hope the venue can be back operating shortly once they’ve been declared free of strangles. It’s an unfortunate situation but now riders in the area have some additional time to secure an all-important Petplan Equine qualification ticket!”
