ROR Dressage Display Team

Following the success of the Musical Ride, the ROR Dressage Display team was set up to demonstrate the versatility and adaptability of the former racehorse with many successfully turning their hooves to dressage.  The team was set up late 2017 and today is their first public appearance.

Cara Hayward is Senior Chef d’Equipe to the British Junior and Young Rider Dressage team and has a gift for bringing the best out in the horses she trains.

Between the horses here today, they have run 107 times, winning £139,362.  They are all based in and around Lambourn and have been training together since February, 2018.

All proceeds go to charity.



Our biggest ever full-colour 126-page programme showing the location of the racing yards and listing the horses at each yard is available to purchase at all car parks and at the entrance of each yard. It will also include interesting articles and many great coloured photographs. Price £5.



Horses don’t like steps either and so most of the racing yards are on level ground with tarmac or concrete walkways. The horses are generally in their stables and will often have their head out of the door, for a wheelchair user it may be difficult to view the horses who are tucked away in a far corner of the stable. However, the stables are all attended and we encourage you to ask for assistance from one of the stable lads. When you arrive at the stable please indicate that you are disabled or have a disabled passenger. Wherever safely possible you will be allowed to park close to the buildings and drop a disabled passenger.

The afternoon entertainment is on a grass field which may prove challenging to wheelchair users without attendants. Parking for vehicles with disabled drivers and passengers is directly next to the field.

Special toilets for disabled visitors have been hired and are available at key locations. Please ask any of the marshals. They are also marked in the Open Day programme

If you have any questions concerning facilities or access for disabled visitors then please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.



You are welcome to bring your dog provided it is kept on a lead. This is for safety reasons since there are many people about. We really want everyone to have a great time so please respect instructions from marshals and yard staff.

In warm sunny weather cars become ovens, and because of this the RSPCA advises that animals are never left inside cars. If an animal left in a car is panting for breath it may be starting to suffer from heatstroke, which can kill an animal very quickly. Leaving windows open or putting a bowl of water in the car does not help.

Owners who put an animal at risk by leaving it inside a locked car could face prosecution. If you see a dog left inside a parked car on a warm day, please contact the police who will be in attendance on the day.
