Dressage by the Sea

Bawley Point, February 22 - March 1

Two separate back-to-back international dressage events will take place at Willinga Park over nine days. It's the equine version of a graceful ballet performance, dressage tests the skill of both horse and rider as they perform varying degrees of movement. With a cafe, bar and restaurant on-site, along with the Willinga Park Bus Tours operating on Saturdays and Sunday, it's a great opportunity to experience this world-class equestrian facility. More information and tickets are available via willingapark.com.au.
