ERC Dressage Show

at Lower Haddon Farm, Station Road, Bampton, Oxfordshire, OX18 2AT.

By kind permission of Jane Dudley

Parking is limited so please follow the directions of the parking steward and park considerately. Lower Haddon have held many dressage competitions in the past so it should all work fine for us. All tests and warm-up are on an arena surface – warm-up outside, tests inside.
N.B. Lower Haddon Farm is next to Brize Norton Airfield. Sundays are usually fairly quiet but you may experience low flying aircraft nearby.
