Dressage Anywhere and British Dressage are delighted to announce a new Associated Championship for 2018 – the British Dressage Online Associated Championships, hosted by Dressage Anywhere.
The existing Associated Championships provide a real celebration of diversity within the sport and this new Championships extends that further by enabling riders, who are unable travel to live competitions regularly, to take part in competitive dressage.
This is perfect for riders in remote locations, those without transport or difficult to load horses and also those who don’t own their own horse or pony but ride regularly at a riding school or club. It’s really easy to take part – enter online and then once you’ve ridden and filmed your test, upload the video to the Dressage Anywhere website for judging.
From 1 January 2018 to 30 September 2018 riders entering Dressage Anywhere’s regular monthly competition classes at Introductory to Medium level can qualify for the Online Associated Championships.
To qualify riders must achieve three scores at 60% or above, be a BD Associate Member and a BD Club Member for the final.
Ruth Chappell of Dressage Anywhere said, ‘Dressage Anywhere has been running BD Online Championships for five years and it’s fantastic for this to now be recognised as part of BD’s collection of Championships. This is a great reflection on the standard of riding from our members and our commitment to making competitive dressage available to everyone.’
