Dressage Competition Team

HOPE HAVEN 1

What Is the Dressage Competition Team?

The Dressage Competition Team is an opportunity offered to a small group of riders that have shown a dedication to their riding, an interest in showing dressage and a consistent improvement in their skills throughout their lessons. 

The team uses their weekly riding lesson to train and improve their skills with the focus on competing monthly in virtual and/or in person competitions from March to November.

 

Is There a Cost to the Dressage Competition Team?

  • All riders are required to carry their Ontario Equestrian and Equestrian Canada memberships (~$130/year) in order to compete. 
  • Riders must commit to two riding lessons a week during competition season to give them ample opportunity to fine tune their dressage tests before competition. 
  • Riders are expected to be turned out in appropriate English show attire
  • Riders take part in virtual dressage competitions monthly from April to October
  • Riders are given the opportunity to travel with the team to offsite weekend competitions at an additional cost
