Provisional Event Timetable

Sunday September 11th


Arrive after lunch.

Ride a test in front of a BD judge to get a feedback sheet for ideas on what to work on in your lessons.

Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th

A private 45 minute lesson with either Grand Prix Rider Mat Burnett or Charlotte Smithwhite, you keep the same trainer for the whole of camp. Using the feedback sheet from your test riding and perhaps another ride through your test, you will work on how best to improve your score and your horse’s general way of going.

You will be allowed 10 mins to warm up before and cool down after your lesson so you don’t waste any precious lesson time.

If you wish to ride again during the day, this will be possible – please book with Katie.

Additional unmounted workshops available on both days at an extra cost – TBC (previous examples: Pilates, riding confidence, massage)

On one day an evening demo will take place, demonstrating good and not-so-good test riding, common mistakes made and how to improve.

The demo evening is with BD List One Judge Richard Baldwin. Tickets will be available to the public for this demonstration.
