2020 is going to be another great Dressage Year for Widmer Equestrian Centre!

We will be hosting and running many dressage events including some high profile ones. It will be our 3rd year of running the Petplan Area Festival Semi Final and the Shearwater Young Horse qualifiers. Two of our own Festivals of Dressage running over 3 days in May and August and a fantastic gala evening with the amazing Sam Turner and Billy Wizz in September.

As always we will continue to run our very popular unaffiliated dressage series leading up to our championship in November on Saturdays and Thursdays. We run” lead rein” to Medium levels which are kindly sponsored by our sister company Widmer Feeds Country Store.

Competition facilities

Our warm up arena is brilliant for youngsters at their first outing or horses that just need a little bit more space, as its a floodlit 30m x 80m fully fenced area . We run our competitions both indoors and outdoors on Martin Collins tracks in areas of 20m x 60m. Our dressage dates start in February and run throughout the entire year.
