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 15 - 19 April 2015. 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 29 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 packed five - 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 Championship while on Saturday, it's the turn of the Superflex Intermediate I Music Freestyle which is always a great mix of up-and-coming talent alongside the established pairings.
We're delighted to say Olympic team gold and individual bronze medallist Laura Tomlinson wil be sharing some of her extensive knowledge on both nights in her master class. Laura has recently returned to action following becoming a mum for the first time and has her eyes firmly set on a place at Rio in 2016. She has a great string of youngsters, some home-bred, so don't miss Laura in action.
In a new twist for 2015, we'll be bringing the two freestyle classes to life with the help of international rider and judge Paul Hayler. Ever wondered what it takes to put together a winning freestyle? Just what are the judges looking for? Well, Paul will provide his insight to these and other questions. Plus, he'll add his own expert opinion after the tests so all of you can help play judge for he night!
