Book now and you can take advantage of our price freeze promotion and guarantee that you’ll get the best value on General Admission and Pavilion access before our 2023 ticket prices are launched next month.  

We know how every penny counts, so we’re holding prices at 2022 final levels until midnight on 4 July to thank our members for their loyal support. We have also changed our ticket provider to reduce costs further, enabling us to offer significantly lower booking fees for 2023, with these now applied per order as opposed to per ticket.

The LeMieux National Championships continue to offer great value for money too – with free parking, free access to grandstand seating and free admission for children aged 12 and under, all included in your ticket price.  

Entering into it’s third year at Somerford Park, the best display of dressage in the UK returns in September, promising to be bigger and better than ever. So make sure to join us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of British Dressage in style.

With classes from Prelim to Grand Prix, as well as the showcase KBIS Young Dressage Horse series finale and dedicated U21 championship, there’s no better opportunity to see the full range of British Dressage levels on show – all whilst Britain’s top amateurs and elite battle it out for the 31 prestigious titles on offer. 

Away from the arena, spectators can enjoy a first-class visitor experience designed to be enjoyed with friends and family, whilst learning from our top riders and being inspired by famous faces and household names.  

Visit the extensive shopping village, learn from daily masterclasses, spend time relaxing in the food court with a glass of wine, or be entertained at the Fan Zone - where daily sessions will take place offering you a chance to meet, greet and hear from some truly inspiring characters and dressage stars.  

The Nationals also continues to offer an enhanced digital experience, with access to free Wi-Fi on site, live scoring and results, online programme, the popular Radio Nationals and BD podcast all returning in 2023.
