Dear Members and Friends of Wessex Riding Club
It is with regret that with taking into account the general advice regarding sporting events due to the current Corona-virus outbreak that we have elected to cancel the 29th March event, postponing the start to our dressage season for 2020.
We hope that over the next couple of weeks we will be in a better position and have a clearer picture when we can start our competitions.
It has been a difficult decision to make but we feel that we carry a responsibly to our members and guest competitors to ensure that we are all safe whether we are competing or helping to run the event.
We will update you as soon as possible.

Our Dressage competitions run from March to October. Schedules will be made available on this website, they can also be found on the Nfed Website and at local tack shops. The aim of the club is to encourage you to have a go and have fun. We offer tests in Introductory, Preliminary, Novice, and Elementary levels judging using British Dressage score sheets. If time allows, you can obtain immediate feedback with the judge after your test (booked in advanced) .
We also run a Dressage to Music Classes at our events, as listed in the schedule.
Our competitions are held at the Wilton RDA Pembroke Centre, Wilton,Salisbury SP2 8PJ

Due to the recent outbreaks of Equine Flu we are following guidance given by BHS that all competitors in the forthcoming dressage events must bring their Horse Passport to demonstrate that their horse has been vaccinated within the last six months, as per the recommendations made by the Society.
Without this evidence you may not compete and you will be asked to leave the RDA yard.
Thank you for your understanding on this matter, we feel it is everyone’s interest and safety.
