What is the IDG Dressage Group?


The IDG Dressage Group (formally known as Isis Dressage Group) was founded in 1985 at a time when it was generally thought that Dressage was outside the reach of all but the very well heeled.


Dressage is the basis of all riding and the purpose of the Group was, and still is, to bring the art to all riders to help them get the most out of their riding and their equine partners.

The main activities of the Group are: training and competition experience. But members benefit from support and encouragement from several angles and we run social events as well.
