We understand that the dressage stakes just keep getting higher – and the pressure continually mounts.  Give yourself the edge and start using this Wireless Communication System produced by WHIS in the Netherlands and used by our very own champion Charlotte Dujardin.  The unit allows your trainer to communicate privately with you while you are warming up at events – and if you choose the new two-way unit – the rider can talk back at their trainer.  This could make all the difference to your performance and ultimately your scores.  Lightweight, small, easy to use.

Classic Dressage are exclusive supplier of the WHIS unit here in the UK. 

We’ve written a cheat-sheet so that when you get your unit (which is always fully charged and ready to go) you’ll feel confident to give it a go immediately.  We usually find that it is the simple errors that stop our customers using their units – and who really wants to read all that small print in the accompanying instructions!   So here  goes – an ‘idiots guide’ to the wonderful WHIS …..

The difference between the two units is that the Competition has a completely isolated and private connection – meaning there can never be interference.  The Original has 13 different channels you can choose from – meaning that there is a chance that someone else at the warm-up arena might be using your channel so you will have to change.
