Home > Events > RDA Dressage Day at Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled on Friday 1st November 2019

Our next dressage competition has been organised for riders from Avon Riding Centre and any other RDA Groups within our Mid West Region that would like to participate.

In this competition our focus will be mostly on encouraging riders who haven’t ever tried to do a dressage test before, or are less experienced. Therefore the choice of tests is quite basic with a short, straight trot on and off leading rein in Classes 3 & 4. Class 5 will however be a more challenging canter test:

Class 1 Intro Test 1 (2012) – walk only on leading rein

Class 2 TVI /PVI Test 1 (2016) – walk only, ridden independently

Class 3 Intro Test 4 (2018) – walk & trot on leading rein

Class 4 Intro Test 4 (2018) – walk & trot, ridden independently

Class 5 TVI / PVI Test 3 (2013) – 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.

Entries can only be made from 10am on Saturday 28th September and the entry fee will be £10 per Class. No entries will be accepted before this date or without payment at the time of booking.

Please include the rider’s full name and that of their horse or pony when entering and be sure to check with your Coach to confirm which Class is the right one for you.

It is possible to pay by credit card over the phone by contacting our receptionist Claire

on 0117 9590266.

Light refreshments, including hot food, will be available on the day.
