Here's what some of our 'regulars' have to say about Interdressage:

'Interdressage has proved a great support for me and my friend who also competes. Whilst it is different from a 'real' competition in that you can chose the day, have another go if you forget the test etc, these same choices apply to everyone, so no-one has an advantage. For those of us unable to get to 'real' competitions Interdressage is a fantastic step forward and in many classes there are more entrants than at 'normal' competitions. It is also great fun to say you have competed 'internationally' as many riders enter from abroad'.
 
'The feedback you get from each test you do is amazing. Not only is it judged by a BD listed judge, something local shows do not always obtain, but another member of the experienced team writes tips and encouragement which can be up to a page long, something not available in 'real' competitions. So much so that when I got a 'normal' sheet back at another competition I felt short changed as the comments made would not help me better my training. As the judges can watch each test as many times as they wish a true judgement of your training is obtained and isn't that why we should be competing - to further our education'.

'Interdressage is an amazing concept as it has allowed people like myself to not only compete but compete internationally. When I first entered I was terrified, lacked complete confidence, my horse was very green, we had no transport and the thought of so many people being able to watch our test was very daunting. However, the test sheet I got back was unlike anything I had ever had before, not only were the judge's comments so very helpful and much longer than at a normal competition the tips/advice from a separate party covering an A4 sheet of paper have been of invaluable help. 'Long Live Interdressage' I could not have done without it.'

All our dressage tests have been specially written for Interdressage.  They are short enough to down load quickly and efficiently, but testing enough to be interesting and educational for you and your horse. They have all been tried and tested thoroughly by a variety of riders on all different types of horses and ponies with new tests being written on a regular basis.

But remember that we must receive the correct entry fee before we can judge your test.

Who runs Interdressage?

Karina Hawkridge - founder of
www.interdressage.com.

Karina has ridden and competed since a child and has run her own professional yard alongside her husband, Stephen, since 1987 producing competition horses and ponies as well as buying, schooling and selling family all-rounders. She has had competition success in BSJA jumping classes as well as dressage competitions and has also competed in showing classes including 'side saddle' as well as experiencing the thrill of team chasing and hunting! She is a true 'all round' horse-person! For the last three years 'Interdressage' has been her main focus - but she still finds time to fulfil a full teaching schedule and rides her own horses regularly.

Karina recognises the need to establish correct flat work before success can be achieved in any equestrian discipline; be it dressage, show jumping, eventing, pleasure rides or hacking. A correctly schooled horse is not only a pleasure to ride but is also more physically able to carry out the work asked of him and it is her knowledge of 'getting the best' out of every horse that Karina would like to share with you!

With 37 years spent riding a variety of different horses and ponies and with considerable teaching experience under her belt, including teaching regularly for the York and Ainsty South Pony Club, Karina is well qualified to help and encourage every Interdressage competitor and offers comprehensive 'tips and advice' on all tests judged with Interdressage.

Because of the wide range of horses she has been lucky enough to ride over the years, there are very few schooling or behavioural issues that she has not encountered. It is now- through the power of the internet, that Karina can share her expertise with everyone who enters an Interdressage class.

Glynis Mills - Interdressage judge. British Dressage Listed judge.

Glynis has ridden and competed since childhood. She has never had the 'luxury' of a readymade horse. Being small in stature she has ridden and competed on many different types of ponies and has sourced and produced all her ponies herself. Glynis was instrumental in having the B.D ruling changed allowing adults to compete on ponies!

Glynis has successfully competed up to advanced level dressage and has trained with some of the top riders; Richard Davison, Jane Bartle-Wilson, Stephen Clarke, Paul Hayler, to name but a few! She has also considerable showing experience -'in hand' and 'ridden'- with an enthusiastic interest in all our native breeds.

Glynis, through her positive and upbeat judging, encourages, inspires and 'nurtures' every rider; negativity is banished from her comments and observations and because of this Glynis is always in demand to judge. This is why she has been such 'a hit' with 'Interdressage' competitors!

Glynis has an excellent eye for detail and continues to 'judge train' keeping up to date with all that is new in the world of B.D judging. She is a 'list 6' judge - and has firsthand experience of competing at every level all the way up to 'advanced'- and this is why we welcome her expertise here at Interdressage.
