Class Restrictions

Horse & Rider combinations must ride at the appropriate level, we reserve the rights to stop a horse & rider combination riding at a level if their ability shows they should be riding at a higher level.  We want to keep this competition as fair as possible.

Dressage Riders Online try to keep everything fair, therefore the following class restrictions apply-Please note – these are a guide, please see each class schedule for any restrictions.

*No horse & rider combination may enter a class more than one level below their highest entry without permission from DRO. We understand things can change when it comes to horses so just send us a message letting us know your situation and so long as it’s a fair reason then you can go back down levels if required.
