Last year, Carl Hester concluded a memorable dressage programme at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show by being crowned grand prix freestyle to music champion. Carl, winner of 10 major championship medals and a British dressage statesman during his illustrious career, thrilled a capacity crowd that basked in the Thursday afternoon sunshine with 10-year-old gelding Hawtins Delicato. Bolesworth's dressage programme was dominated by double Olympic champion Charlotte Dujardin, who won six classes on an exciting selection of her young equine talent, but Carl - Charlotte's trainer and mentor - took centre-stage in the finale.
Dine in Style and be part of the exclusive Bolesworth VIP Hospitality experience. Located on the bank overlooking the Main Arena, the marquee offers diners the opportunity to watch world class equestrian sport and entertainment from the seat of your table. Packages will include admission & VIP parking; lunch & Afternoon Tea or evening dinner. A variety of hospitality packages are available throughout the show.
We will host several Dressage classes up to CDI3* level. One of the highlights is for sure the Freestyle Dressage Class.
Dressage to Music brings together the rider and the audience in a way that no other form of dressage can do or arguably other equestrian discipline. It is a fun way to compete in dressage competitions having put together the test of the rider itself including the movements they think suits best for the horse and the chosen music. It is also a great crowd puller and people who don’t have a lot knowledge about dressage can fully appreciate and enjoy Freestyle Dressage to Music.
The horses you will be seeing are all on their way up to the ladder to Grand Prix, and so they really are the stars of the future.
In addition, we will host the Dressage viewing trials for the World Championships of Young Horses.
