else could grab your place. And entries will ONLY be accepted on the entry form.

  • Dressage test sheets can be obtained from British Dressage (Google them). Sorry –

you will have to get your own as we are not allowed to photocopy them (yes we

arrange a second date, giving priority to those who didn’t get a place.

contact Peter or Amy if you do not have Facebook access. No start will be before
