The Double Competition Arena 65m by 50m

All competing takes place on one of the three outdoor competition arenas, within either a 60m by 20m arena or a 40m by 20m arena according to the schedule. All working in takes place either indoors or in the fenced outdoor working in arena. Lunging is not allowed in the interests of other competitors unless it has been discussed in advance to arrange a suitable time before the show starts. All of Sheepgate’s shows are stewarded, so you will be called to the arena at your designated time, although it is the competitor’s responsibility to be there at the right time. Any assistance with removal of your horse’s boots or calling of a test can be accommodated just ask on the day. The Sheepgate Team are happy to help.



One Of The Competition Arenas

The Unaffiliated Dressage Series offers classes from Intro through to Medium, as well as the option of a ‘pick-a-test’ class from Advanced Medium up to Intermediaire 1. The full schedule of dressage classes at the unaffiliated dressage shows offer something for everyone. From those just starting out or returning to the arena after a break, classes start with the walk and trot ‘Intro’ tests, progressing through to ‘Novice, Elementary and Medium’ for those wanting to take up the challenge and qualify for the Final. A perfect introduction to the next level of training and competing before progressing to affiliated level or if you want to develop your relationship with a new horse, Sheepgate is the ideal venue. All dressage tests can be purchased from Sheepgate Tack & Togs or direct from British Dressage.
