Dressage by the Sea
Saturday 22 February 2020 to Sunday 01 March 2020
Dressage by the Sea 2020 will be hosted on the grounds of Willinga Park, a world-class equestrian centre set on 2000 acres of the NSW South Coast in the seaside town of Bawley Point. The venue combines stunning architecture, sculptures, and a native botanical garden, with the latest in equine technology and luxury stables.
This event will showcase elite dressage competitors attempting to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. This is a unique opportunity for a rural community to get up close to elite dressage horses. It's the only international dressage event in rural NSW. The event promises an enjoyable day out for spectators, with excellent food including local produce such as oysters and berries.
The best of the best will battle it out in the Grand Prix Freestyles, where beautiful horses perform dressage to choreographed music. VIP tickets available.
Olympic Gold medallist Dorothee Schneider will present a masterclass. This is a four hour specialist clinic. Dorothee will work with select horses and riders to train at different levels, followed by a signing session.
The event will also welcome the FEI Regional Dressage Forum, an international seminar for trainers, coaches, riders, officials and dressage enthusiasts, with both theoretical and practical demonstrations.
