Dear Members, 

Welcome to the North West Regional Webpage and the home to Norman Northwestie & Friends

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 North West 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.

We now have an online booking site called Bookwhen North West where all our regional training and activities are shown.  There are still alternative ways to pay, just contact your RDO. Click the Bookwhen icon and it will take you direct to the site.

For further information about the region, please follow the quick links below and this will take you direct to where you would like to go.

  Flexi - Training

 What is Flexi-Training? It is training that is more suited to our members by having the flexibility of booking your training session when it suits you and not having to stick to a day clinic.

How does it work? Visit the flexi-training bookwhen site and select your trainer. Book through the site and then contact the trainer direct to arrange your lesson.  When you book, you will receive a confirmation email with a unique booking reference number. You will need to quote that to the trainer. You then have up to 3 months to book your lesson from the time your paid for it.

Benefits of Flexi-training? Apart from being flexible to the member, BD now use a selection of UKCC L3 accredited coaches and L2 recognised coaches to deliver their training. It allows more opportunities for members coming forward for teams and also has reduced the cost of training as you are paying for the trainer and not an additional arena hire. (N.B Some flexi trainers will use other yards that could be subject to an arena hire)
