Petplan Equine Area Festival Dates for 2020/2021

The Petplan Equine Area Festival series was launched in 2000 and has grown from 15 Area Festivals with just 555 tests ridden in its’ first year to over 6,300 Area Festival tests ridden in the 2018/19 series. The new format will offer riders all year-round competition and even more opportunity to compete!

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, all British Dressage competition is currently suspended until at least May 31st, and competition thereafter is still under review. All Area Festival competition dates and activity will be further updated once a decision from British Dressage on resuming competition has been made.
