World Horse Welfare has teamed up with the British Horse Society (BHS) to give unaffiliated dressage riders the chance to compete.

The horse charity will hold a series of classes at their Hall Farm Recovery and Rehabilitation Centre, Snetterton, Norfolk, this summer.

The aim is to encourage inexperienced riders or riders with inexperienced or young horses in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

The first event takes place on Saturday 11 June and includes two Prelim tests and one Novice test. The other dates are Saturday 9 July, Saturday 13 August and Saturday 10 September.

Hall Farm centre manager Sue Hodgkins said: “We are really pleased to be holding dressage competitions here again.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for World Horse Welfare and the BHS to offer riders a chance to take part in a competition with their young or novice horses in a relaxed, friendly environment with excellent facilities”.
