Dear members,

HKEF Online Dressage Competition via Dressage Anywhere commences in October

Following last week’s announcement on the new online dressage competition series, the HKEF, in conjunction with The Hong Kong Jockey Club, is delighted to share more details on this competition.

The worldwide online dressage competition website Dressage Anywhere will be offering competitions only for Hong Kong based riders in monthly basis. Classes will be available from introductory to medium advanced, with short and long arena tests for preliminary to medium levels. Introductory, preliminary and novice levels will have a Senior section (over 16 years old) and Junior section (16 years and under), with rosettes to 6th place in each section.
