This Sunday November 5th Bermuda’s Dressage riders will compete against 36 countries for the 37th annual FEI World Dressage Challenge, a competition which bridges National and International levels of competition in the Dressage community.
Adult riders include Angela Halloran- Smith, Claire Salmon, Dawn Fox, Jackie Scott and Virginia McKey who has previously represented Bermuda in Dressage events overseas.

All riders will have to conform to International Rules and procedures for this FEI competition, with international veterinarians and judges flying into Bermuda to officiate the day.

Good luck to all involved and thank you from the Bermuda Dressage Group to everyone who has assisted in the run up to this competition.
