PONY CLUB Dressage

Dressage is the highest expression of training where horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements. it develops obedience, flexibility and balance in the horse, and is therefore the basis for all other equestrian disciplines. The ‘Pure dressage’ competition is for teams of three/four riders of any age, who ride a Novice level test in a 60m long arena.

Entries are now open on the main Irish Pony Club Its Plain Sailing page for the Irish Pony Club National Dressage Day, which will take place on Saturday 17th October 2020 at Spruce Lodge Equestrian, Ballyrogan Stud, Redcross, Co Wicklow, A67 PC 42.

The closing date before which competitors must submit their entries to Its Plain Sailing is Friday 9th October 2020 at 23.59.  All competitions must be pre-entered.  Entries will not be taken on the day.  All entrants must be registered members of the Irish Pony Club for 2020.  Dressage times will be available on the Irish Pony Club website on Thursday 15th October 2020.

National Dressage Day 2020 - Cancelled

NATIONAL DRESSAGE DAY ANNOUNCEMENT

The chairman of the Dressage and Combined Training sub-committee, Kate Harvey, and co-organiser Marie Hennessy are very sorry to have to announce that the National Dressage Day scheduled for Saturday 17th October at Spruce Lodge, Co Wicklow cannot now go ahead. 

The Government's introduction of Level 3 Covid-19 restrictions for the whole country from today, for at least 3 weeks, mean that travel outside one's county and outdoor sporting events for more than 15 people are not permitted, so we have no alternative but to cancel.  

We plan to reschedule this competition for the Saturday 1st May (the May Bank Holiday weekend), and would like to encourage all those disappointed this year to work hard at improving their dressage so that they and their ponies can come back in even better form in 2021!
