The three-day I.C.E. Horseboxes All England Dressage Festival (21-23 May) will be the first Hickstead-run competition to take place after the easing of lockdown restrictions. It also marks the inaugural Premier League dressage competition to take place at the main Hickstead showground, following the closure of the original Dressage at Hickstead site last summer.
The show gets underway on Friday 21 May with a host of Shearwater and British Dressage Young Horse classes, as well as qualifiers for the National Championships at Advanced Medium, Prix St Georges and Intermediate II level.
Saturday sees the Grand Prix action get underway, with an Under 25 test plus a Le Mieux Premier League Grand Prix test; while Sunday’s action culminates in the I.C.E. Horseboxes FEI Grand Prix Special. Other highlights at the fixture include classes for ponies, children on horses, juniors and young riders.
