The Masters Du Cheval Ibérique is the only European dressage league and championship specifically for Iberian horses. Each participating European country has its own representative association to organise and manage an annual series of qualifying events from which is drawn a team to compete at the European Championship each year.
The MCI GB is the official British Association for The Masters Du Cheval Ibérique and our qualifying series includes dozens of events across the country each year. We welcome both purebred and partbred/Fusion PREs (Pura Raza Española) and PSLs (Puro Sangue Lusitano) to compete in our series and at our UK Championship Event held every year, although only purebred horses may qualify for the European Championship.
The 2024 European Championships will be held on the 23rd to 27th October at Exloo in the Netherlands. Our British team is selected based on qualifying scores and the numbers of competitors that we may take in each class/level.
Next year our MCI National Championships will be held at Addington Manor on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September 2024. Event information, schedule and entries will be available shortly.
