Dressage is the highest expression of training where horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.  It develops obedience, flexibility and balance in the horse, and is therefore the basis for all other equestrian disciplines.

The ‘Pure dressage’ competition which takes place at the Area Qualifiers is for teams of three/four riders of any age, who ride a Novice level test in a 60m long arena.  The team if qualified can then compete at the IPC Festival in July.
