DRESSAGE COMPETITION  with classes from Intro to Medium levels

HELD AT:  SHEEPGATE EQUESTRIAN www.sheepgate.co.uk

   ADDRESS: Sheepgate Nursery, Leverton, Boston, Lincolnshire, PE22 0AS  TEL: 01205 870236  EMAIL:equestrian@sheepgate.co.uk



Horse & Hound is thrilled to be launching our inaugural Festival of Dressageat Sheepgate, Lincs, on 20-22 July 2018.

Following the success of Horse & Hound’s first Festival of Eventing last year, we are delighted to be introducing our dressage equivalent. Having spent five years as dressage editor at Horse & Hound, this is one I’m particularly excited about. I’ve enjoyed a great many hours at dressage championships and know

that the crowd are passionate, knowledgeable and have high expectations — of themselves and others. I’m looking forward to bringing those dressage aficionados this new event, with a bit of Horse & Hound magic thrown in. I look forward to seeing you there.

A large percentage of Horse & Hound’s readers are successful, keen amateur riders. We know from experience how much anyone who fits that description needs clear goals to maintain focus and motivation.

After all, it’s not easy getting up at 5:30am every day before work to keep your horse fit and progressing.

Readers and their trainers told us how much they and their clients would value a Horse & Hound championship — somewhere they could aim for to offer a great stay away show experience with the

prestige of becoming a Horse & Hound Champion, plus great prizes — Horse & Hound rug anyone? — And of course coverage in Horse & Hound’s magazine, website and social media channels.
