The 2018 WA State Dressage Championships
Held annually, the State Dressage Championships showcase the best dressage horses and riders in Western Australia providing high quality competition for combinations competing for state titles from Preliminary to Grand Prix.
2018 will see the inclusion of the freestyle competition at the State Dressage Championships providing spectators an exciting and beautiful spectacle of dressage horses performing to music.
The expansion of the event to include classes on Friday is an indication of the growth and development of the State Dressage Championships and we welcome new combinations at all levels to participate while welcoming back ongoing loyal supporters. Dressage WA is also excited to cost FEI 3* judge Betty Brown (NZL) as head of the ground jury for the 2018 WA State Dressage Championships.
Held at the 'Home of Equestrian sports' - the State Equestrian Centre, Brigadoon - the venue provides an opportunity for top class competition and accommodation with 7 purpose prepared dressage arenas including the indoor stadium seating 1200 spectators and a stable complex for more than 140 horses. Saturday afternoon will see a High Tea showcasing WA's best dressage combinations performing to music in the freestyle classes. We invite all dressage enthusiasts to participate in this afternoon of spectacular dressage to music. Entry as a spectator is free, while High tea tickets will be available online. Whilst attending the championships, please drop into the trade village and support the businesses that support our sport. You will find a variety of goods and services on show around the central riders retreat.
Presentation of awards will take place daily. A number of perpetual awards will be awarded at a separate event hosted by Dressage WA in December 2018 celebrating the achievements of dressage athletes, horses, owners and supporters. A list of these awards is available on the DWA Website.
