Charity Dressage Show 12.12.21

Time is flying far too quickly for my liking; Christmas Eve is a fortnight away and the Charity Dressage Show is only two sleeps away as I type!!! Busy, busy, busy, sorting all the lovely extra goodies and sponsorship from Doagh Equestrian, Equi-Tog, NAF and Pegasus Dressage Music, all to do what we can to raise as much as possible for the wonderful work of Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of our friend Katherine MacLurg. So we are looking forward to Sunday’s competition, which we are hoping to feel really festive, as we are encouraging everyone to ditch the usual dressage code in favour of Christmas jumpers, tinsel and whatever gets you that special Christmas mood.


This competition is also the third of six in our Winter Dressage League, so remember to qualify for the final in March we take competitors best two scores in the same class, on the same horse/rider combo and then add them to their score at the final, so hopefully plenty of time to qualify still in January and February if you haven’t made it to one of our competitions this winter so far.

We are still trying to keep things as covid safe as possible, so there are some extra points that we are asking everyone involved to please comply with in order to help run the competition safely for everyone.

  • Obviously if you or anyone in your household is experiencing the symptoms or having to self isolate please call and cancel.
  • We ask that everyone please wears a face mask while indoors if you can.
  • Spectating and non riders should be kept to the minimum please and should make every endeavour to keep their distance.
  • Remember to keep a social distance of at least 1 metre from anyone not from your household at all times.
  • Ensure good hand sanitisation by availing of the sanitiser and hand washing facilities.
  • Access to the shop will be limited to 2 customers at a time to facilitate payment and shop purchases only.
  • At check in please make sure to leave a contact number for each rider.
  • We will be offering a limited range of hot take away food and drinks via the shop window.
  • Results will be posted on the window at the end of each class, but also on here as soon as possible after the competition.
  • Test sheets can be collected from the shop window after the scores have been calculated and saved to the computer.
  • We ask that everyone leaves as soon as practical after riding their test, we really don’t like sending you away, but we all have to do what we can to curtail covid.
  • Rosettes for class winners will be kept safely until you next return to Laurel View if we hadn’t caught up with you on the day.

Thank you all in advance for playing your part we really want to do what we can to keep things from getting any worse🙂  

Below I have listed the times, hopefully they work well for everyone involved. As always if you can not make it for whatever reason, please do get in touch as soon as possible to let us know, or to see if we can jiggle something to make things suit you better.


These entries don’t have separate times listed below as they are decided on the riders score taken from their test ridden in Classes 1 – 7, it’s really just an extra way to raise more money for Macmillan 🙂

Now it’s been a while since Santa and I have been in contact, so I didn’t realise that Little Elves have got a little older, so to allow for this we have now raised our Little Elf age limit to 12 years and under!! Santa’s Senior Citizens minimum age remains at 60 years young.

We have some entries already for these classes, but if you haven’t already done so and you (or your child) fit into the age categories for the special classes please send me a message or email so that I can highlight your original entry for inclusion in these classes. Then when you are paying your entry fee, you would be paying £22 for two entries instead of £12 for just one, thus an extra £10 for the magnificent Macmillan charity and an extra chance for you winning rosettes & prizes.
