If anyone has any queries, remarks, or comments please pass them onto the email for the Championships: championships@dressageireland.ie)

At least one of these tests at each level will be run at every show.

Please note: Scores obtained in the following Preliminary tests will NOT count towards qualifying scores: BD1 (2006), BD2 (2016), BD7 (2002), this was late addition to qualification standards as of late May, so we have made sure that we will not be using them onwards.

To enable all our shows to run smoothly it is compulsory that ALL members HELP at shows.

 Late entries may be accepted if there are withdrawals in a class, at a surcharge of an additional £2 per class, please contact DI NR Secretary.
