Brief History of Scottish Dressage Group.....

The Scottish Dressage Group was started in 1964 by Joan Scott-Plummer (Sunderland Hall) and Mrs Stella Hayward to provide a club for a small number of riders interested in promoting dressage and improving their horses.  It was originally called the Edinburgh Dressage Group and later changed to the Scottish Dressage Group. The membership has increased steadily over the years. For a brief history of the club’s first 50 years, click here.

The club was originally very small but as the popularity of dressage increased so did the membership and the club affiliated to the BHS Riding Clubs and teams were entered for show jumping and eventing as well as dressage.  Teams were entered in the Riding Club competitions in all disciplines and qualified for the finals several times.

Joan Scott-Plummer started instruction in side-saddle and an annual competition was held at Leithhead, Kirknewton.  Teams of Three have competed successfully at Dryden and The Binns.

In 1989 we held a 25 years celebratory dinner which proved a very enjoyable and interesting evening with so many past members able to attend. A 50 Years celebration dinner was held in 2014, and proved to be a great success.

Instruction has always been a priority for the club and many trainers, from Scotland as well as south of the border, have helped members throughout the years.  

It has been customary to run an annual dressage competition and venues included Sunderland Hall (Galashiels), Roslynlea, Campbell Park (Colinton), The Drum, Gogar Park, Dalkeith Show Ground, Vogrie, Holyrood Park, Dalkeith Park. Competitions are presently held at Cousland Park Training and Livery Yard, near Haddington.
