HELLO FROM THE EASTERN REGION!

Welcome to the Eastern Regional Webpage.

Each Region is made up of Regional Committee Members, all volunteers who are very keen to give something back to our sport. We welcome new ideas, so if you have anything that you would like to see then please contact one of us to discuss further.

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

British Dressage has something for everyone from Grass Roots to World Class. No matter what level you are at and whether it is competing or training that interests you, enjoy the journey.

There is also the chance to get more involved with the region, run clinics and get sponsors and it can all be done locally in your own county.  If you think you might be interested in one of these roles - do take a look at the role descripton HERE or download an application form HERE and send it in.  Please also feel free to call Katharine for a chat and to find out more: 07872 603871

 

Do you fancy being an Official BD Steward?  Stewards are a vital part of our sport, maintaining calm in the collecting ring, ensuring good practice, correct tack and the smooth running of our competitions, as well as being guardians of the welfare of the horse.  Starting out at Level 1 where you can steward at Area Festivals and Regionals, you can ultimately finish your Stewarding journey as an FEI Steward at the Olympics!  For further information about what is involved CLICK HERE, and see below, the dates and venues for our up-coming courses:

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!
