The Dressage Musical Spectacular will also feature both the Young Rider and the Grand Prix Freestyle competitions featuring the country’s leading dressage combinations.

Vanessa Way and KH Arvan will have their first international start since returning from Britain, and will be up against eight other combinations, including Burkner Medal winners Lynley Stockdale and Komplete Kaos, NZ record holders for top GP score Bill Noble and Airthey Highlander, Kieryn Walton and Saraceni, Hannah Appleton and Zactac Graceful, Karen Trotter and Flamenco G, Jayne Craike and Showfields Papanui Crusader, and Christine Weal and Speilziet.
