Dressage Anywhere Introduces Young Horse Classes

Calling all 4, 5 and 6-year-old horses! Dressage Anywhere is running Young Horse classes online during August.

Horses will compete within their own age and in the comfort of their own home and be judged by top professional British Dressage Young Horse judges. Great for building up confidence before trying to qualify for Young Horse Championships or just to enhance training.

Trainer and producer of young horses and BD Training Director, Paul Hayler, who is judging the 4 and 5 year olds feels this is a great opportunity to have horses assessed by professionals: “It will enable riders to pinpoint their strengths and areas that may need further work, all without having the stress of travelling.”

Matt Hicks, another young horse specialist, says “Online competing and training is a great way of getting expert advice from judges to whom you may not normally have access, especially during these difficult times. It is not instead of going out, but it is an added tool in assessing your horse’s training.”
