Almased Dressage Amateurs in 2019
The last part of the new dressage tournament, Almased Dressage Amateurs took place from the 17th to the 21st of October at World Cup Herning. The Almased riders were looking forward to participating in the last part of the new dressage tournament, and to compete in one of Europe’s biggest arenas, alongside the professionals.
- Both Denmark, Luxembourg, and Germany have welcomed the idea of a new tournament for amateurs. It has been a pleasure to see the riders compete in the same surroundings as the professionals. We have had a lot of positive feedback from the participants and riders interested in participating in the tournament. Right now, we are working intensively to plan and improve the concept, in order to create an even better Almased Dressage Amateurs tournament in 2019, said show organiser, Jens Trabjerg.
Almased Dressage Amateurs is the first ever international amateur’s dressage tournament in Europe
- I believe that the success of this tournament is the result of this being a completely new opportunity for the amateurs. For the first time, we enable the amateur riders to compete at spectacular shows, where they, for sure, will have some great and unforgettable experiences.
Almased Amateurs Dressage in 2019
Based on the experiences and feedback from the first year, the team behind Almased Dressage Amateurs have decided to make some changes for the 2019 tour. In order to make the best conditions for the amateur riders, the Bronze, Silver and Gold tours will be changed into Big and Small tour. Small tour will be Prix St. George and Intermediate 1, while Big tour will be Intermediate 2 and Grand Prix. Furthermore, the entry fee has been lowered, and it now includes one seat in the VIP area for each rider.
