Dressage is great fun and here at the Wheatland Hunt Pony Club we hold regular flat work rallies and dressage training throughout the year. Dressage is something everyone can get involved in starting off at Grassroots level which is a basic walk, trot, canter test.  If you would like to have a go we would love to see you, come and join in the fun!

What is Dressage?

Dressage is a sport where horse and rider perform a series of predetermined movements set out in a dressage test with accuracy, rythem and style. A judge marks the test and gives you a mark out of ten for how well you carry out each instruction. At the end of the test the marks are added up and the winner is the horse and rider with the highest score.

How Do I Get Involved?

The good news is that you have probably already started doing some Dressage! When you are riding at home and getting the pony to do the things that you want him to do you are already practising the basics of dressage. There are lots of opportunities to practice dressage through competitions at various levels

  • Unafilliated
  • Preliminary PC70
  • Grassroots PC80
  • Novice
  • Intermedate 
  • Open
