There will be eight opportunities in the UK for riders of pure-bred Spanish horses to secure dressage qualification for SICAB (Salon Internacional del Caballo) which is the pinnacle of the PRE calendar drawing over 250,000 visitors every year and holding championship finals for multiple disciplines but only involving one breed – the PRE (Pura Raza Española).
