The Sentower Dressage Festival brings international dressage sport for the first time to the highly popular show jumping facility, Sentower Park, in Opglabbeek, Belgium, on 22 - 25 April 2021. 

While the German, Danish and British elite riders are gathering at the 4* CDI at Hof Kasselmann in Hagen, Germany, the inaugural Sentower Dressage Festival CDI 3* is therefore not lacklustre. Holland's complete A-squad has decided to enter in this Belgian show to gain ring mileage before the Dutch Olympic team selection trials in Ermelo and Rotterdam. 

The CDI Opglabbeek brings a massive field of big tour riders to Belgium, but the programme is boosted with classes from pony to Under 25 level. 

On Wednesday the horse inspection for the youth divisions took place in the morning, while in the afternoon ring familiarisation in the competition arenas was scheduled.

Eurodressage popped over to Opglabbeek to take some fun training photos in the spring sun.
