National Dressage ChampionshipsThe 2017 LeMieux National Dressage Championships are taking place at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire from 14-17 September. The event attracts the best British dressage riders across the levels with championship classes from prelim to grand prix. We can’t wait to find out which rising stars come to the fore this year.

This year the annual summer championships will include a masterclass by European, World and Olympic medallist Laura Tomlinson MBE, on Saturday and Sunday. Visitors can also enjoy letting loose their credit card with their favourite ‘must-haves’ from the shopping village, and if you like to let your hair down when the sport is over for the day, don’t miss the LeMieux Welcome Party on Friday night. Entrance to this great get-togethers is free with a showground admission ticket.

Our reporters will be on hand to bring you our favourite ‘Tales from Stoneleigh’ here on the website, plus the latest news and gossip on the H&H Dressage facebook page. And don’t miss Horse & Hound magazine, on sale 21 September, for the full national dressage championships report.
