Brightwells Equine Auctioneers celebrate British Dressage

Following discussions with British Dressage, Brightwells Auctioneers are delighted to announce a unique competition that will bring the Champions of the Winter and National Championships together to compete in three lucrative £1,000 Freestyle classes which will form part of a ‘Celebration of British Dressage’.

The £1,000 Champion of the Champions classes will be Medium, Advanced Medium and Prix St George level tests and staged alongside the Brightwells auction of Dressage horses and the DHI Stal Bekelaar £10,000 Challenge for past graduates.

Additionally Brightwells are keen to reward clients who have purchased horses at the Brightwells Sales and will invite the best horses competing at these levels to return to Addington and compete in these prestigious £1,000 Freestyle classes against the Champions.

Carl Hester commented “What a great idea, Charlotte and I are going to be going head to head to try and win the £1,000 Prix St George Champion of Champions, riding each others horses. Charlotte on the reigning Champion Valegro and myself on Charlotte’s Fernandez who she bought at the Brightwells Sales”.

Amanda Bond Head of British Dressage commented “We are thrilled to be able to work with Brightwells to bring this new concept to life. It will provide an exciting showcase for the very best dressage talent across the three levels.”

Richard Botterill of Brightwells said “We are very excited to introduce this new concept which fits in perfectly with our Auction of talented Dressage horses and the £10,000 Challenge for past auction horses. The ‘Celebration of British Dressage’ will be a fantastic social event being unique and exciting with Champions competing and future Champions offered for sale.
