VVRC Christmas Dressage – December 2021

Our Christmas dressage competition that was open to both VVRC and ORC members was a great success! it was lovely to see everyone looking very festive.

All competitors, negotiated dressage tests with tinsel, bells and Christmas trees with very few spooks!

Thank you to our judge and helpers and a big thank you to all who brought lovely food and mulled wine for us to enjoy.

The best fancy dress went to Joanne Micklethwaite and Kate and the runner up was Lucy Walker and Boots

Dressage Update

The in-house Summer Dressage League started with the April competition and has successfully run in May and June too.

It has been good to see our club members and their lovely horses out competing again. We have had successful days and we thank our judges and all our helpers who made the days possible.

We run two dressage leagues, a summer league and a winter league. Also included in the league competition will be the ROR competitors.

Radford’s has proved to be a popular venue for our competitions and we have been lucky enough to book it for the rest of the year on the following dates:
Summer League dates
Sunday 4th July
Saturday 21st August
Sunday 19th September

The points for the League are calculated as for British Dressage:
60.00 – 61.99% 1 point
62.00 – 63.99% 2 points
64.00 – 65.99% 3 points
66.00 – 67.99% 4 points
68.00 – 69.99% 5 points
70.00 – 71.99% 6 points

We have some members competing at the BRC Summer Area Dressage competition soon. Please contact Janet Warner/Maureen Coxon if you are interested in representing the club or hearing more about future area competitions.

We look forward to a successful year of in-house dressage competitions aimed at all levels from introductory level to Elementary level, so come and have a go. It is very relaxed with lots of encouragement.

Once again, thank you to our judges and helpers. Without you we would not be able to run these events.
