Great Britain has one of the most highly-developed pathways for equestrian disability sport in the world, and Dressage at Bolesworth will cater for this, with classes for the fast-growing discipline and prizes for the best retrained racehorse in each section. Richard Davison, a four-time Olympian and European medallist, has been at the forefront of the international dressage world for a few decades. Richard, together with Pro Dressage competitor and trainer Sarah Higgins, will join with a few friends for what is set to be an enjoyable demo on Friday evening.
