International rider and trainer Anna Ross will headline the gala evening at this year’s Hartpury Festival of Dressage (3-7 July).
The Saturday evening demo (6 July) will form part of a busy and entertaining schedule including the NAF Superflex FEI CDI Grand Prix Freestyle Final and the Elite Stallions Young Horse PSG Final.
Anna Ross has represented Great Britain on teams all over the world at the European Championships, Aachen CDIO, London Olympia and on the World Cup Circuit. Highlights include an individual 10th place at the European Championships and a win in the World Cup qualifier at Warsaw.
A popular coach and former dressage personality of the year, Anna has coached at the Olympic, World and Pan American Games, helping pupils achieve medal winning performances and top ten placings.
Anna now runs a large training and sales yard in Devon, Elite Dressage LLP, where she offers coaching, horses for sale and training services to the highest levels in both dressage and eventing.
She received the British Equestrian Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dressage and was presented with the Davison Award at Olympia.
Speaking from Bolesworth, Anna said “I am thrilled to be heading to Hartpury and to be part of such a popular fixture in the dressage calendar. The demo will offer insight into the training of the young horse with grand prix in mind, and hopefully provide inspiration for those in attendance.”
