Following the recent resignation of the current Chair, Katie Powell, for personal reasons, we are looking to appoint an individual to this key role who will provide inspiring leadership at regional level for all British Dressage activities.

Ideally the Regional Chair should be somebody with a strong interest in dressage, who has been actively involved within the sport as a judge, trainer, organiser, rider, or owner.  This person will bring a balanced approach to the implementation of policies agreed by the Board and technical committees.

The Chair will work closely with the Development Officers for the South & East Region, Katharine Perry and Sharon Walker, to ensure that the Regional Committee functions effectively and maximises the potential of each area. The Chair will encourage collective and collaborative working, helping to resolve any issues that may arise within the region. Further information on the position can be found via the Role Description here. If you have any queries about this position, or would like to apply, please send a CV and application form to

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Katie for her time, effort, and energy as Chair over the last 12 months.  We are sorry to see Katie leave a little earlier than anticipated, but we completely understand why she has made the decision to stand down and wish her well as she continues her involvement in the sport as a member within the region.
