Exercise Competition Sheets

Every year British Dressage updates the Members’ Handbook to give competitors new rules that have been revised from the previous year. To compete in affiliated dressage it is worth reading the Member’s Handbook as it provides information on how to prepare you and your horse for competition. This can be anything from what riding equipment you are allowed to use and wear, to how you can impress the judges in riding that perfect test.

One rule that has come into place for 2019 British Dressage under the ‘synopsis of rule changes’ document, is in section ‘ Entries and Competition’. This rule explains about what type of rug can be worn when warming up in an arena before your test. The rule written says ‘only rugs designed for riding can be worn whilst warming up’. From this, competitors can now only wear and ride in exercise rugs in the warm up arena.

With this new rule now in place for British Dressage, Redpost Equestrian has a wide selection of Exercise Competition Sheets available. Allowing you and your horse to warm up for competition in style and comfort whatever the weather.

Here are our top picks for Exercise Competition Sheets
