2015 NSW Dressage Championships "a super show"

The 2015 NSW Dressage Championships have been described as one of the best ever, as four days of competition wrapped up at Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC) today. 

More than 200 riders completed in excess of 400 tests across all levels, including grass roots Amateur Owner Riders competing in their own championships for the first time. 

The event was promoted as the “friendly championships”, and the atmosphere of the event, though competitive, was just that. 

Dressage NSW president Prue Spurrett said she was very pleased with this year’s championships. 

“What more could you ask for – fabulous horses, great weather and a super turn out brought everything together for the 2015 NSW Dressage Championships,” she said. 

“Congratulations all round to Helen Lawson, Michelle Becchio and their team for creating a friendly atmosphere for all riders to do their best. 

“Well done to all those who achieved their personal bests and everybody who made it to SIEC.”
