British Dressage Ideal Saddles Combined Training Series
Love dressage and jumping? Well, the Ideal Saddles Combined Training Series is Ideal for you!
We have been a proud sponsor of the British Dressage Combined Training Series since 2017, when Combined Training made a successful return to the British Dressage calendar after a six-year absence. The series is better than ever, providing grass roots competitors with the unique opportunity to compete in two disciplines whilst experiencing a British Dressage Championships.
The dressage element of the series runs at Prelim and Novice levels, with short arena tests and the showjumping from 70cm to 1 metre. It’s an exhilarating way to hone your dressage skill while working on your show jumping technique – all with the chance of qualifying for a fabulous final to be held at Field House EC on 15 March 2020!
For the 2019/20 series, there are 19 qualifying dates, with the first kicking off on the 26th of October in Bold Heath Equestrian Centre. For a full list of qualifying dates and venues, visit the Ideal Combined Training Series page on the British Dressage website.
Our very own Hayley Watson-Greaves is an Ambassador of the series, having successfully competed in eventing, show jumping and working hunter before settling for a career in dressage. She comments “I love the combination of dressage and jumping and of horses showing their versatility across both disciplines. I think the series is great for the sport of dressage as it will help to widen its appeal to the jumping crowd. I train a lot of event riders during the winter and highly recommend combined training competitions as a great way for them to monitor their training progress over the winter months.”
