“It was a difficult decision to increase fees and reduce prize money, but the Dressage Board felt that it was the responsible and necessary thing to do in order to ensure the ongoing viability of the National Championships and the ongoing financial stability of Dressage New Zealand” said Dressage Chair Scott McKenna. 

Dressage NZ wishes to sincerely thank BATES SADDLES, the Championships naming rights sponsor, national series sponsors and all event sponsors for their support.
