SAINT-ARNOULT - Pôle International du Cheval Longines - Deauville> July 15 to 18


The Dress'in Deauville marks each summer the return of the best dressage riders and hopes of the discipline to Normandy. This year, everyone is meeting for four days to compete in the 9th edition of the competition.

On the borders of sport and equestrian art, we hold our breath in front of a dressage competition. The evolutions are made on covers composed of classical movements and imposed or free figures, the horse evolving in the different gaits in total complicity with its rider. The Dress'in brings together some twenty of the best couples in the world who stand out under the eyes of renowned international judges in six competition levels: CDI3 *, CDI2 *, CDI YR (Young Riders), CDI J (Juniors), CDI P (Ponies) and CDI Amateurs.

The Dress'in Deauville is also one of the stages of the national "FFE Dress Tour" circuit, a mark of excellence for riders and horses. Professional riders will choose to compete with their high level mounts in the CDI3 *, the highest level of the competition, or with aspiring horses in the CDI2 *. Reserved for professional riders, it brings together 3 events under the name "Grand Tour": the Grand Prix, the Grand Prix Freestyle (free resumption in music) and the Special Grand Prix.
