Kingston Maurward College, Moreton Stables and Half Moon Stud have joined together to organise the Dorset Dressage Championship.

This exciting new affiliated championship is sponsored by Whittaker Horseboxes, Ensor Byfield, Solicitors for Sport, West Country Riders Magazine and Dorset County Saddlery. The growing prize fund is more than £2000.

The championship qualifiers, from Novice to Medium level, will run from April until July 2001. Monthly competitions will take place at each venue and the final will be held at Half Moon Stud in August 2001.

The four highest placed individuals in each Dorset Dressage Championship Class will qualify for the final.
