IRISH PONY CLUB HALLOWEEN VIRTUAL DRESSAGE COMPETITION 2023
We are delighted to announce that we are running a Halloween National virtual dressage competition 2023 for Irish Pony Club members (hosted by CGP equestrian). Entries will be open on the main Irish Pony Club Its Plain Sailing page between 09.00 on Monday 16th October and 23.59 on Wednesday 8th November. Videos of dressage tests should be submitted to the CGP equestrian website https://cgpequestrian.ie/ipc-virtual-dressage-halloween-2023/ according to the instructions provided at https://cgpequestrian.ie/how-to-enter/.
They will be judged by Listed dressage judges who will give useful feedback which will help riders to improve in the future.
Classes are at Introductory, DI Preliminary, DI Novice and DI Elementary dressage levels.
Members can ride more than one dressage test, at more than one level, on more than one pony (with no age or H/C restrictions).
If members are interested in being considered for an IPC dressage team in 2024, we encourage you to attempt the appropriate The (UK) Pony Club tests at UK Pony Club Novice, Intermediate or Open level which were used at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in 2023.
Entries are €15.00 on the Irish Pony Club Its Plain Sailing at https://www.itsplainsailing.com/org/ipc
