NAF Five Star Winter Dressage Championships
The NAF Five Star brand joins us in celebrating all that is great about British dressage at this year's Winter Dressage Championships 11 - 15 April 2018. Talented amateurs and Britain's best compete side by side over five days of intense competition.
Held at one of the UK's top equestrian venues, Hartpury Arena, the championships offer competitors the chance to go head to head for 40 titles from Preliminary through to Intermediate I, and play host to the ever popular Petplan Equine Area Festival Championships.
Join us for FREE to watch during the day on any of the action - but on Friday and Saturday nights, we turn up the volume for our ticket-only Gala Performances featuring freestyle to music. On Friday, we host some of the country's best combinations for the Magic Prix St Georges Music Freestyle Gold Championship while on Saturday, it's the turn of the Superflex Intermediate I Music Freestyle Gold which is always a great mix of up-and-coming talent alongside the established pairings.
An annual hightlight of the gala performances is the Masterclass and this year's host has just been announced. It's none other than leading international rider and trainer, Michael Eilberg. World Equestrian Games team silver medallist Michael has enjoyed much success in the saddle from Young Horse classes to Grand Prix. He will without doubt deliver an informative and educational masterclass to all.
