Plan your 'Nationals Experience' here
LeMieux, the leading UK brand of luxury dressage essentials, once again joins us in celebrating all that is great about British dressage at this year’s National Dressage Championships, 15-18 September. Britain’s best will make the journey to Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire for four full days of thrilling competition.
With this being an Olympic year, there’s a lot of buzz around dressage and this show guarantees a feast of sport for both knowledgeable fans and newcomers alike. Championship titles from Prelim to Grand Prix are there for the taking, including the crowning of the LeMieux National Dressage Champion, last year won by dressage legend, Charlotte Dujardin, and the lovely Barolo.
The spectator-friendly layout of the show means you can get up close to watch your favourite horses and riders and, when you fancy a break, there’s a tempting choice of food outlets and an even more tempting shopping village! And, for a touch of luxury, why not treat yourself to a ticket for the Nationals Pavilion. This popular ringside pavilion is the perfect place to spend time and eat with your friends and family, whilst not missing a minute of the action.
Amongst the competition, dressage legend Kyra Kyrklund is your host for this year’s master class, supported by Royal Equestrian. Kyra is one of dressage’s all-time greats. Her riding and training career has kept her at the top of world-class dressage for many years. In her native Finland, she has been National Dressage Champion ten times; she has taken part in six successive Olympic Games, won a silver medal at the World Equestrian Games in 1990, and won the FEI World Cup Final in 1991 with the great stallion, Matador.
After a full day soaking up the atmosphere of the show, what better way to let your hair down than joining one of the nationals parties, where everyone is welcome – the LeMieux Welcome Party on Friday night and the Show Party on Saturday night. Entrance to these renowned get-togethers is free with your showground admission ticket.
