RoR Elite Dressage Performance Award

In 2014 the RoR Elite Dressage Performance Award in association with British Dressage (BD) will offer a first prize of £2,500 and a second prize of £500.

To encourage competition, all previous winners (1st placed horses) will no longer be eligible to win 1st place in the same competition in subsequent years.

The Dressage Performance Award is open to any level, from grassroots to the higher levels.  To be eligible your horse must be a Weatherbys registered thoroughbred, have raced in GB, and be registered with RoR and BD. The winner will be the horse with the most points in British Dressage from 1st January to 31st October 2014.

The prizes will be presented at an Awards Ceremony at the end of 2014.  

To enter for the award, owners or riders simply have to register their horses with RoR and BD. Provided the horse is eligible, the points will accumulate automatically through the year.
