Latest News

    Winter Dressage 18/03/18 - Cancelled

    Dressage tomorrow (18th March) CANCELLED.

    Unfortunately we are going to have to cancel the dressage tomorrow due to weather. Although the arena itself is not affected by the snow, many routes around saddleworth are and the weather is due to close in again tonight. There is also scheduled 40mph winds through the day and freezing temperatures which are felt not safe to run the show.

    All entries will be automatically bounced over to the next winter dressage on the 15th April. If you are unable to make this date, please email winterdressage@odrc.co.uk and we will arrange a full refund.
