Unaffiliated Dressage


Unfortunately, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all commercial activity from Friday 20th March 2020, provisionally until the end of April 2020 (with the exception of online dressage). We intended to run our competitions at the weekend, however, due to significant withdrawals, the changing climate and following government guidance, we have made the decision to cancel all commercial activity from Friday. As we are sure you will agree, although this decision is difficult, we feel it is the responsible and right thing to do and the priority has to be public and staff health and safety in the current situation. At this stage, we will be rolling over entries and bookings to future competitions and events and will update you in due course as to when competitions and events will be re-arranged.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

* Equine Influenza Update*
After receiving veterinary advice from our local vets on the best measures to put in place to stop the spread of infection; we have decided to move onto allowing horses onsite who have been vaccinated with in 12 months. We still ask to see horses passports prior to unloading, every time your horse is on site regardless of if we have seen the passport in the past.
We hope our visitors and competitors will understand that the welfare of the horses is of paramount importance.
