Performance Notes:

In the Olympia Dressage Masterclass; ‘Dressage Unwrapped’, Richard Davison will bring together superstars from the dressage and wider equestrian world to explain the intricacies and importance of dressage across all disciplines.

In the FEI Dressage World CupTM (Grand Prix) each competitor performs the same dressage test and the best score wins. Dressage involves a horse and rider carrying out a sequence of highly skilled movements from memory, demonstrating the power and elegance of the horse and is described as ‘the ultimate expression of horse training’ by the FEI. Each movement is scored out of 10 and the test is awarded an overall percentage.

Extreme Driving – the first of our three indoor arena driving classes when some of the world’s best drivers pitch their talents against each other in a fast and furious course around obstacles driving horse fours.

The Puissance – an Olympia classic, also known as the ‘big red wall’. The Puissance wall is put up higher each round, if a horse knocks the jump down or refuses then they are out; the highest-jumping competitor wins.
