Leading Australian eventer Paul Tapner and German team coach Chris Bartle will each hosting two British Eventing Masterclasses over the northern winter.

The focus of all four sessions will be on improving cross-country riding, with each split into three to cater to different levels of riders.

  • Part 1 will cover grassroots levels (BE80, BE90 and BE100)
  • Part 2 will address riders beginning or moving up to Novice level
  • Part 3 is aimed at the more experienced riders currently working towards or competing at Intermediate/2*/3* levels

Each section will include three demo riders with whom the coaches will run through jumping exercises to demonstrate the challenges that they would expect to face in the cross-country course at each level.

The two experts will also discuss how these exercises will educate and help the horses and riders to be able to cope with these challenges more confidently in future.
