What is the Winter Dressage Series?

There are three stages to the series:

  1. Preliminary Rounds are held between October and March all over the country, to enable competitors to qualify for their Area Competition
  2. The 19 Area Competitions will take place between March and April for those who qualified through the Preliminary Rounds
