Wellington Riding is proud to host leg five of the British Dressage Premier League 2019 season over 5 – 10 June.. With an estimated 700 entries of national and international competitors, it promises to be one of the most exciting events of the Hampshire venue's 2019 calendar.

The highlight of the entire show is without a doubt the Gala Evening on Saturday 8 June which centers around  Prix St George Freestyle To Music. Wellington is delighted to announce that John and Diana Barley, owners of Nirvana Spa, a stunning day spa located in Berkshire, are once again title sponsor of the feature Gala Evening Class. Nirvana Spa’s  sponsorship brings a remarkable first prize of £2,000, the highest level of prize money awarded to a first placed rider at a British Dressage Premier League. This year their support will extend to cover £500 for the runner up combination in the class.

The venue is extremely grateful to Nirvana Spa for being such a generous gala sponsor for the third year in a row. John and  Diana have created a legacy with this much anticipated class attracting the public and equestrian media to watch top class riders compete for the coveted first prize.

“Wellington Riding was one of the first centres in the country to run Dressage to Music. Our Waterloo Arena with 8000 square metres of performance space will indeed prove to be a music freestyle battle field for these high profile PSG competitors with such a prize at stake thanks to Nirvana Spa," commented David Sheerin, General Manager of Wellington Riding.

Nirvana Spa’s Gala Sponsorship is perfectly matched as Diana Barley’s long term passion for horses, in particular dressage, which began with her very first lesson at Wellington Riding. Since that time, she's been a passionate advocate for equestrianism and Nirvana Spa’s dedicated sponsorship continues not only as Annual Affiliated Sponsors of Wellington Riding but also supporting British Dressage encouraging people into the sport with the Nirvana Spa Volunteer of the Month Award.
