Leinster Dressage Training Programmes

Published 24.04.2018

As a result of the support and help we have received from you, our Members, at our shows, and the success of the Judy Reynolds Masterclass, Leinster Dressage are excited to announce our most extensive training programme to date, open to all our Members. All Leinster Dressage training is subsidised and organised by a voluntary committee, who also run numerous shows throughout the year.

In signing up to the training, we would greatly appreciate if you could, in turn, help out at our Leinster shows for a minimum of two half days, which will be a great help to the already stretched committee. Please nominate the two shows you can help at when you apply for training.

For any questions or queries on training, please email . No training queries will be addressed via Facebook.

1. High Performance and Developing High Performance Training

We are delighted to have Irish International Riders and Coaches Judy Reynolds and Roland Tong on board this year to deliver a number of regular 2-day clinics. High performance riders at Prix St. Georges and above, and developing high performance riders from Medium level up to and including Advanced level will be contacted directly as Coaches supply us with dates based on their availability. In the event that a clinic is not completely full, a wild card may be given to riders performing well at Elementary level.
