Dressage Stars Head to the TheraPlate UK Liverpool International Horse Show

DRESSAGE stars will light up the TheraPlate UK Liverpool International Horse Show stage at the iconic M&S Bank Arena on the opening night of the equestrian and family extravaganza.

As well as the legendary Carl Hester competing in the The Equitop GLME Freestyle, leading names Emma Hindle, Louise Bell, Henriette Anderson, Ulrik Moelgaard and Sarah Higgins will showcase Dressage to Music at both Grand Prix and Inter 1 level for the first time.

Former 5 star winning event rider Ruth Edge will also be joining the line up for the first time.  Ruth hung up her eventing boots in 2016, and has since established herself as one of the country’s leading dressage riders, already having won multiple National titles, and scoring top results at Grand Prix level.

Said TheraPlate UK Liverpool International Horse Show, Dressage Consultant, Richard Davison: “The show is one of the most exciting on the equestrian calendar and it is great to have dressage back for a third year.

“We can always rely on Carl to provide a masterclass when it comes to competition riding and we also have the very best judges in Stephen Clarke and Debbie Jones to deliberate over those much sought after leading scores.”

The performance will also incorporate a feature demonstration by Horse & Hound columnist and top dressage rider Anna Ross in the opening half of the session.

Britain’s finest, Carl will also be in attendance at the show for ‘An Audience With’ session allowing visitors to upgrade their ticket for a close up and personal with the dressage legend, Richard Davison and guests during a special session at 4pm in the Arena Theatre on Saturday, December 28.

Added Show President, Nina Barbour: “The M&S Bank Arena is a fantastic venue to showcase the sport at its best, complemented by cutting edge production, to give the crowd a real taste of top class dressage.”

For those visitors making it a New Year to remember they can look forward to a showjumping feast on New Year’s Eve, December 31, with the prestigious TheraPlate UK Grand Prix one of the highlights, when leading names will battle it out to take top honours.
