Show day for Virtual Dressage league

- Advertisment -

110 competitors were experiencing those nail-biting show day nerves on Saturday and Sunday, February 20 and 21 as Dressage at Home and International held the second show of its ‘Spring into Dressage’ League. It was definitely a busy few days in the office and it stayed that way over the weekend, as the virtual dressage company had a new record of entries! Lots of old faces returned and a huge warm welcome was extended to the new ones joining the company to compete for the first time.

The competitors certainly enjoyed the range of classes, with big entries in the Young Horse, Veteran and Jumping classes. These classes had such big entries that they were split to accommodate numbers.

Company owner, Emma Hobson, commented: “With the inability to hold or attend ‘live’ shows at present, riders are really enjoying the thrill and excitement of being able to compete at home without the added stress or financial burdens of travelling. We have even included a Freestyle Jumping class to accommodate those who enjoy getting airborne. This class is judged very much like a Working Hunter class and it really encourages competitors to think about how they’re jumping and their style, rather than just keeping the poles up.

“In this class, the judges look at the pace and it’s suitability for the approach to the fence; the fluency of the round is marked as well as the rider’s balance, lines and approaches to the jumps. The riders have to include a series of jumps in their course from a vertical, an oxer, a combination, a skinny and a jump to include a filler. This class is a good test, as the riders really have to think about their preparation and approach. We even have competitors as young as five riding in this class and that’s inspirational!”

Thanks are extended to the judges, Emma Hobson, Ivor Harper and Jenny Johnson, as well as the scribes for all of their hard work to get the show running smoothly.
