Sat 27th October - Loch Ness pleasure ride + combined dressage
15 km pleasure ride followed by choice of dressage test (intro, prelim, novice or elementary) indoors in 40 x 20 arena
You enter the level of test that you would normally enter (i.e. no one capable of doing a novice test should enter an intro!).
If you have never done any dressage before now is a great time to have a go and you would enter the intro.
This is just a basic walk and trot test.
The judge is lovely and will give you feedback after the test as to what you might go away and practice in order to get better marks in your test.
Have a go - you never know, you might actually enjoy it!
Dress is casual but clean and tidy - no need to plait or wear show jackets.
Pleasure ride rosettes plus rosettes from 1 - 6 worked out on your dressage percentages regardless of what level of test you are doing, so that levels the playing field.
Dressage training will also help your horse to become more balanced and stay sounder for his endurance work.
15 km Pleasure ride combined with dressage - tests are Intro B, Prelim 18, Novice 27, Elementary 44
Please let us know what test you are doing when you enter.
Tests can be got from British Dressage and there are loads of videos of people doing all these tests on Utube for you to study
Taster + Dressage class also available - approximate distance will be 8km
