Goodbye to one of our Judges

We were very sad to hear of the death of one of the region's longest standing Judges, Sue Howard. You can read the full obituary below for this remarkable lady who gave so much to dressage in the East. Thank you Sue:


Eastern Oscars

The Eastern Oscars Evening was a glittering affair from start to finish! Riders, supporters and committee gathered to celebrate another great year in the region.  Lots of people took the time to vote for their favourite venue or to nominate a rider in a particular category, and these people were recognised on the night with certificates and trophies. There was food, drink, music and a lot of socialising at a great event to bring 2019 in the East to a close.


Carl Hester yard visit

We had a fabulous day out for the region, visiting the yard of Carl Hester recently - and these are some of the comments from those who were lucky enough to go:

A truly phenomenal and inspirational day! So many memories will be remembered from this day. Many thanks to BD Dressage Eastern Region for organising it. Plus allowing us the opportunity to watch, not only amazing horses, but getting to meet, such an amazing and truly humble man, Carl Hester; plus not forgetting, Charlotte Dujardin.
