Riverleigh International Equestrian Centre annual fancy dress freestyle charity event



The annual fancy dress freestyle charity event is one of the highlights on the Riverleigh International Equestrian Centre`s event calendar. All proceeds and donations this year will go to  Elephants Alive.

Michael-JacksonRiders of all ages enter and compete in this freestyle event and the routines are judged by professional judges. Prizes and trophies are awarded to the best riders for their technical ability and their innovative “fancy dress freestyle routines”.

In order to compete, the riders choreograph a freestyle routine to music, and appropriate costumes are worn by the riders and their horses to reflect the chosen theme. The process takes many months of planning and practice to reach the high standards expected of both horse and rider.

The event is held on a beautiful country estate in Muldersdrift, Gauteng. The property has been professionally designed to include plush livery quarters for horses, ultimately designed for Dressage with two top class full sized arenas, a show-jumping arena and smaller arenas for lungeing and pony riders. The full entertainment/catering area is used for show days and seasonal and fun events and can also be used as a place to just sit back, relax and soak in the absolute calm and inviting country atmosphere.

This is not a graded event, but all are most welcome! For more information regarding the event, or how to get involved, please contact Sheba Zager at shebazager@imaginet.co.za
