Al Habtoor Polo Resort and Club delivers another successful Affiliated Dressage Competition


It was an exciting evening at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort and Club as it hosted the first Affiliated Dressage Competition of the season that started with the Emirates Equestrian Federation Series 1 set of tests. The competition has brought together competitors from all across the Emirates and displayed their skills in riding achieved by their consistent training and hard work.

The competition was judged by EEF Dressage Official Nina Pilawa. “I’m happy to see new horses compete tonight and the event was well organised. I commend the team for bringing a positive atmosphere that showed through the competitors and the supportive crowd”, says Pilawa.

Annie Haresign, the Riding School Manager, was very pleased with the success of the event. Haresign expressed, “It brings me joy to see the dedication and work that was evident in each performance tonight. I can’t wait to see them progress in the field of dressage.”
