A message from Candice Curtis Director of Rosettes Spain ~ Escarapelas España Sponsor and creator of The Horse Video Show...... 

" At your own yard on any chosen day. All you need to supply is the ring and someone to video everyone riding their tests or you could video each other to make life easier! The Horse Video Show will host your videos and supply the Judges and awards for your competition - you can even pick your Judge from our Judges Panel! Your group or club will even walk away earning a commission on the entry fees you create from your competition! Make the day fun for all the dressage competitors in your club, beginners to advanced riders! Your group working together will give the venue the competition feel, in the comfort of your own home! Which should help with your nerves! Or you could bunch together and hire some local facilities, like a local Internationally sized dressage arena (60m x 20m) some where you can all hack to..... This way you and your horses enjoy the thrill of riding at a venue with out the extra pressure a real horse show creates. Plus you can host more competitions... one every week if you like, so you can also earn an income whilst giving your clients a fun ladder to climb during their classes! Video their test for them, teach, correct and explain to them whilst watching the video (remember you can post your videos for FREE onto, you only pay for your Video Entry!) When your client is happy with their test they can enter it into one of the Classes we have on offer that month! You can then both go over the results, comments and advice from our Qualified Judges, Experts and Professional Instructors!

The Horse Video Show has been created with my fellow horse lovers living in Spain in mind. We suffer terribly with the ever increasing regulations and strict movement orders, required paperwork and rules for owning and transporting equines. Needing a Guia to move our horses off our properly for any length of time, some areas even require it if you simply hack some where and plan to stay there for the day! So I have come up with this new style of competition riding. You can make of it what you will but I know that the more you share and the more effort you put in, the more you will get out of The Horse Video Show!"

Competitions that will be added over the coming year:- 

  • Natural Horsemanship Competitions
  • Western Competitions
  • Jumping Competitions
  • Breeding and Showing Competitions
  • Polo Competitions
  • Indoor Eventing Style Competitions
