We hope you will find everything you need to know about British Dressage Eastern and what we have to offer as a region.

HELP WANTED! We have for the first time secured a Part 3 Judges exam in the Eastern Region. This is great news for all our judges who have passed parts 1 & 2 in the last year and are keen to take this final step to become fully fledged BD Judges. However, in order to run the exams, we need help in the form of guinea pig riders (Novice and Adv Med levels), writers for the examiners and stewards. These exams take place on 28-29 August at Writtle College, Chelmsford, Essex. If you can help at all, we would be REALLY grateful. Please let Katharine Perry know if you are available for writing or stewarding, and if you are able to bring your horse at Novice level, click here and for Advanced Medium, click here. THANK YOU

EASTERN WINTER REGIONALS ROCK! Our winter regionals, going on this week have been brilliant so far. The venue is great, there are lovely indoor permanent stables for the horses, a big warm-up area, and the competition arena inside looks amazing, and was described by one competitor as "a mini Hartpury"! Duncan and his team are doing a fab job running a smooth and organised show. There are mounted prize givings for the top 10 in every class and loads of riders commentating ...on how much they enjoyed their first experience of this. Judges are happily judging from the sponsored Smart Cars, and there is a lovely atmosphere of calm. This, added to the cozy café right next to the school and scoreboards, selling all sorts of delicious food has made this a GREAT regionals so far. Going up to Easton really is well worth the journey - good luck to those still to compete - and well done to our winners so far!

NIRVANA SPA VOLUNTEEER OF THE MONTH
 
Without volunteers, dressage could not function as a sport. Did you know that, at competitions, all scorers, stewards, runners, writers and many of the show secretaries do their job simply for the love of the sport?
 
Each month we announce our NIRVANA SPA VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH, where they'll receive a certificate and trophy plus more! But we can't do this without your help!  Is there someone you'd like to thank for helping settle your competition nerves, or someone who has helped you get to the arena on time? Have your say and email your nomination today!
