RDA Dressage Day at Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled on Friday 27th October 2017
Our next dressage competition has been organised for riders from Avon Riding Centre and any RDA Groups within our Mid West Region that would like to participate.
This time there will be a total of five Classes to suit riders with a wide range of experience and ability including, we hope, some that have never competed before:
Class 1 Test 2 (2016) walk only on leading rein
Class 2 Test 2 (2016) walk only ridden independently
Class 3 Test 3 (2016) walk & trot on leading rein
Class 4 Grade 2 Inter (2017) walk & trot ridden independently
Class 5 Grade 4 Intro (2017) walk, trot & canter
Where possible riders should wear a jacket, shirt & tie and light-coloured jodhpurs. However, if this is not possible they are welcome to wear their normal riding clothes and Group sweatshirts. Leaders should wear riding hats and gloves in line with the RDA policy at Regional & National competitions.
Early entry is strongly recommended as spaces are limited due to time constraints. Also for this reason riders will be expected to be ready and prepared to start their test on time.
We will be taking into account the number of entries for each Class in deciding whether to run all the Classes and the order may change according to the distances being travelled by outside competitors.
The entry fee will be £10 per Class. No entries will be accepted without payment at the time of booking.
Please include the rider’s full name and that of their horse or pony when entering.
To book, please pay by credit card over the phone by contacting our receptionist Claire on 0117 9590266.
Light refreshments will be available on the day.
All riders from Avon Riding Centre should discuss their entry with their coach first and get help in deciding which Class would be best to enter. A limited number of private lessons will be available during half term at a cost of £16.50 for half an hour. You will be able to practice for the competition within your weekly lessons as well.
