In September, British Dressage teamed up with In The Saddle to offer an amazing opportunity of the holiday of a lifetime to Diogo Lima Mayer’s award winning Monte Velho Stud Farm in Portugal.

With the competition coming to a close last month we’re delighted to announce the lucky winner who will be heading to the beautiful Alentejo countryside to enjoy a week long experience combining dressage, sun and stunning accommodation.

Congratulations to Sara Burdess!

Speaking to British Dressage about her surprise win Sara said, “At first I thought the email from British Dressage was a hoax so I double and triple checked the terms and conditions! Christmas has been hard work with a lot of the family struck down with flu, three excitable kids and a yard full of horses so the holiday is really something to look forward to this year. We have been to Ants Nest with In the Saddle previously so we know it will be a fantastic location and experience!”

Jason Brautigam, Chief Executive of British Dressage added, “BD would like to express their thanks to In The Saddle for offering our members the opportunity to win such a valuable prize. We were thrilled to see a large amount of interest throughout the duration of the competition, resulting in a fantastic total of over 3,000 entries. Congratulations to Sara on her win, we hope that she enjoys her In The Saddle holiday to Monte Velho. We’re all very envious!”
