Due to a record number of grand prix entries, Wellington Riding has been given special permission from British Dressage to run two qualifiers on Thursday 7 June at its Premiere League Dressage Show in Hants.

“It is exciting to have so many advanced horses in this country” said organiser Nereide Goodman. “Just a few years ago we were thrilled if we had six or seven grand prix entries. After all the cancellations caused by FMD, WellingtonRiding’s general manager Suzanne Gorringe is very keen to accommodate all the riders even if it means a 7am start .”
