The Quadrille is a display of horsemanship that tells a story, set to music with a team of four riders wearing costume. The display need not necessarily be based on pure dressage movements, and the widest latitude is allowed in designing the patterns.
All riders must play an active part but one or two may show some movements not undertaken by the full team.
The Quadrille Championship will consist of a Selection Trial at the Dressage to Music Championships and a Final. The Quadrille is open to senior and juniors. The teams may be made up of any combination of rider age i.e. one senior and three juniors or vice versa; four juniors or seniors; two juniors and two seniors.
