Join South Munster - Dressage Ireland
We, in South Munster Dressage`, are a small hardworking group that runs up to 14 dressage shows a year.
Dressage is the foundation of all the equestrian disciplines – even the “bit between the fences” for jumping enthusiasts. It promotes harmony between horse and rider,and rewards correct, kind training of horses. Our shows have always had strong support from unregistered riders and we would like to encourage anyone who competes regularly as an unregistered rider to consider joining South Munster - Dressage Ireland. To that end, we are offering these incentives to join us:-
- 2 free lessons on way of going and how to ride a test, accuracy, etc. with South Munster Dressage local trainers. Dates to be arranged according to demand.
- Take part in our Introduction to dressage day on 18th March. Practice your test free of charge and get feedback from Judges and a ride around the arena you’ll compete in two days before the next show.
- Any Youth Development training is subsidised, and can only be availed of by registered members from now on. Join soon to avail of really good training.
- Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Mr Stephan Evans-Freake, a show will be run in Castlefreke with lots of prizemoney and the Joyzelle Lady Carbery trophy. This year, this competition will be restricted to registered riders.
- Only registered riders can compete for the beautiful perpetual trophies that are presented at our Summer finals. Wouldn’t one look good on your mantlepiece!
- Get ambitious – if you score 63% or over on two occassions, you have a qualifying score which enables you to compete at the Dressage Ireland National Championship in Cavan.
- Get dressage points on your horse when you compete and increase his sale value.
If you’re interested in becoming a member, the sooner you join the better value you’ll get out of the year. It will cost €143 to register you as an adult member, a rider and your horse (See Dressage Ireland for further details of charges) but this has to be great value as you’ll end up paying a lot of extra unregistered fees otherwise! And remember, the money you have already spent on day tickets in 2016 can be offset against your membership fee. If you don’t want points, you can register as a member and rider, and not register your horse for €110.
And for our existing members
- Judges – as Judges now have to pay a licensing and registration fee, as well as undertaking all their training at their own expense, we hope to run a few Judges evenings with a bit of fun thrown in!
- If you’re a registered rider and bring along someone else to join as well, you will get one free entry with 2 tests to a show of your choice.
- We plan on doing a few social/fun gatherings this Summer – so watch this space!
If you are interested in joining, or for more information, please contact Marie on 087–134–8613, Jacqui on 086–601–4900, or any Committee member.
