Wellington Riding and Nirvana Spa present a glittering Gala Evening and feature class line-up.

With Wellington International Dressage Festival “ahoof” we wanted to spread the word on competition's Nirvana Spa Prix St Georges Freestyle Gala Evening class, taking place on Saturday 11 June from 5pm - 9:30pm.

The Wellington Premier League Gala Evening is one of the highlights of the Wellington International Dressage Festival. Top-class riders from all over the country will be competing in Wellington Riding's historic Prix St Georges freestyle for the coveted first prize.

The team at Wellington Riding are delighted to announce that John and Diana Barley, owners of Nirvana Spa located in Berkshire, are once again title sponsor of the Gala Evening class. Here is what Diana Barley had to say about it: “Nirvana Spa relishes the opportunity to support like-minded, dynamic, local businesses. Our decision to be Gala Sponsor again this year was inspired by our shared values of excellence & desire to create innovative facilities & luxury experiences. Our stunning Colosseum Suite with Balneotherapy pool offers guests a beautiful setting to unwind in super oxygenated waters. Our facilities are designed for relaxation, healing, and recovery. Diana believes all riders would benefit from spa relaxation and therapy as part of their training and recovery.”. Nirvana Spa’s sponsorship brings a remarkable first prize of £2,000 as well as an increased second prize of £500 and the third prize of £250.

The panel for the evening comprises the following FEI Judges;

At E: Peter Storr GBR – writer Linda Waller
At C: Christine Prip DEN – writer Susie Cumine
At H: Clive Halsall GBR – writer Steph Worton

This Gala sponsorship is a harmonious pairing as Diana’s long-term passion for horses and dressage was established at Wellington Riding when she first started riding. Since then Diana has been a passionate riding community advocate and for multiple years Nirvana Spa has continuously sponsored Para-Equestrian Dressage events as well as events at Wellington Riding and the British Dressage ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award.

Nirvana Spa is a luxurious pure water spa in Wokingham, Berkshire, beautifully curated from the visions of John and Diana Barley. It's a truly relaxing spa day experience, with unique state-of-the-art spa facilities.

So, head over to the Wellington venue this week to witness some show-stopping dressage, and make sure to grab your tickets to the Nirvana Spa Prix St Georges freestyle Gala Evening. Standing and seated tickets are currently still available via the Wellington website.
