What is Friday Night Stars?
Friday Night Stars (FNS) is the highlight of the weekly Dressage competition at AGDF. Featuring a Grand Prix Freestyle, FNS showcases the highest degree of difficulty in the sport. Talented riders and their horses perform technical movements in sync with songs of their choice under the lights. You’ll hear a wide variety of music, from classical melodies to remixes of today’s top hits. You are sure to be enamored by these amazing athletes all evening long, regardless of whether you’re a dressage fanatic or new to the sport!
All spectators should come to the venue with a mask in their possession to use in any indoor venue, including, but not limited to, all bathrooms. Properly-fitted masks are highly encouraged at all times while on the property where you cannot socially distance yourself from people outside of your party.
