Two Day Kentish Festival of Dressage

Whatever your dressage experience, this competition is to help you reach your goals. You will compete in a two-day show, with a freestyle element on the second day. 

We ask you to be honest and open on the entries and enter the level you are happy to compete at. If a combination has scores over 70% at the level above your entry level, you will not be eligible to compete at this level. Please do not enter two levels below the level you compete at to make this a fair competition. For example, if the combination competes at Elementary you will not be eligible to compete at prelim. Your entry levels can be Novice and Elementary. If you have scores above 70% at Elementary, your entry levels will be Elementary and/or Medium.

All combinations entered for the first days Festival class will go straight through to the freestyle on the second day.

This is an open competition, all riders of all ages and experience will compete against one another in the class they wish to enter.  You are more than welcome to enter more than one class if you wish.

The overall winners and places will be the highest combination scores from the two days in the competition classes (warm up classes do not count towards your score).
