Canterbury Dressage operates by volunteers and we would not succeed without the generous personal time and effort provided by many people.

We always welcome and appreciate the help and support given whether it be for the big jobs or the small, we could not run our events without you.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact us on canterburydressage@gmail.com

We need help with:

Writing for Judges at our events.  You don’t have to be able to ride a horse or even know a lot about dressage, you only need to be competent at listening to the judge and writing down what they say. A great way to be involved if you love horses.  Also great if you are a rider – a great way to learn about what the judges look for and see from their place on the arena.

Putting up Arenas – Usually done on the Thursday before an event in the day.

Taking down Arenas – a job that needs done before we go home after an event.

Committee – We always need new people to help run our group.  Not all jobs require you to come to the monthly meetings.

Playing Music for Musical Freestyles – this is only at our major events such as Canterbury Champs and SI Festival of Dressage – you get to sit in a caravan beside the main arena play the music on time and watch horses dancing.

Plus many more – if you are interested please give us a call.

We thought it would be nice to introduce our committee, with a small write up of where they started and where they are now.
First up we are starting with our riders rep's. We are lucky enough to have 2 of them. Being Sophie Griffith and Beth Condon being our youth riders rep.
Here we have Sophie's story. Beth's to follow. 🙂

Please riders, by all means approach these lovey young ladies with any query at all. In fact we encourage it. They are happy to help 🙂

Hi my name is Sophie Griffith and I am the rider’s rep for Canterbury Dressage.
I am a professional rider running my equestrian business SSG Equestrian from Leeston Canterbury.
I started riding at the age of 5 rising to 2 star Eventing over subsequent years.
My real passion now lies with dressage, I have produced my own horses up to young rider level and
South Island level 7 champion, and continue to ride at all levels. I school horses for others, sale on behalf and lessons.
I continue my training with Vanessa Way; I have a young team of horses who you will often see at Dressage.
If I can be of any help, pass on any queries you may have, thoughts on how things are running, please feel free to contact me.
Our horse truck is very visible at events please call in and say hi, if not contact me via Canterbury dressage , my SSG Equestrian facebook page or my web site www.ssgequestrian.com
Look forward to meeting up with you all.
Regards
Sophie
