Second Live Virtus Para-Dressage Competition Is Coming To Winchester, UK

We are thrilled to unveil the highly anticipated upcoming second edition of the Virtus para-dressage competition, set to grace Winchester, Great Britain later this year. Following the resounding success of its inaugural edition held at the Global Games last year, this upcoming event is poised to elevate the standards of excellence in para-dressage.

The event is scheduled to take place from 15th to 19th July.

Organized by Virtus in collaboration with Sparsholt College Equestrian Centre, recognized as one of the premier riding venues in the UK, the event will span over two days and offer competition for II1, II2, and II3 riders.

Sparsholt’s world-class facilities, including stabling for up to 66 horses and Olympic-standard indoor and outdoor arenas, ensure an unparalleled experience for both participants and spectators alike. Notably, Sparsholt regularly hosts affiliated and unaffiliated competitions, further attesting to its esteemed status in the equestrian community.

Uta Rindfleisch, our esteemed Sports Director, calls upon all members to rally behind this event.

“The Virtus Equestrian Committee is dedicatedly crafting a comprehensive program of live competition, culminating in the highly anticipated Global Games 2027 – recently announced to be hosted in Cairo, Egypt. These events, complementing our existing video competitions, signify our commitment to providing opportunities for our growing team of riders worldwide. We are thrilled that Sparsholt College will serve as the venue for this fantastic endeavour.”
