Music Festival Winners Announced!

  • Posted: 7 September 2020

Online dressage freestyle to music rosettes and a Bose SpeakerThe Dressage Anywhere Music Festival took place between July and August and with prizes worth more than £1,000, this competition was not to be missed!

There's so much to love about a freestyle to music test - the preparation beforehand and coming up with a floorplan that's unique to you and your horse; the music choices and then putting it all together. It can be an emotional but rewarding journey.

Please join us in congratulating everyone who took part - it's been an absolute joy to watch tests from some riders completely new to music and some regular music riders!
