Tim Cheffings MTBTG 22 Dec 15

An eye for detail with Mark Todd Bridging the Gap

Tim Cheffings, winner of the 2015 Mark Todd Bridging the Gap (MTBTG) Scholarship, last week enjoyed his first training session with double Olympic gold medallist Sir Mark Todd.

Sponsored by The Mark Todd Collection and Keyflow Feeds, training took place at Tim’s yard in Devon where Mark put four horses and Tim through their paces.

Designed specifically for those working towards a more established 3* level; British Eventing’s MTBTG training scheme is run by BE Accredited Coaches, Gill Watson and Lizzel Winter, and aims to ‘Bridge The Gap' between under 21s and World Class, providing coaching support to help them to move forward and achieve their goals. Anyone that attends a ridden MTBTG training day is eligible to submit an entry for the scholarship.

Commenting following his first day of training, Tim said; “I had such an educational day having my first training sessions with Mark and it was so good of him to come down to me and spend the day. During the sessions we worked hard on both my riding and the horses’ way of going; his eye for finer detail made such a difference.”

Along with mentoring and training from Mark, Tim enjoys an impressive support package as part of the MTBTG Scholarship including, a year’s worth of Mark Todd Keyflow feed, plus products from the Mark Todd Collection, coming to the combined value of £3000.

“I can't tell you how excited I was to win the MTBTG Scholarship. Mark’s success has been built on determination, hard work and love of the sport, which is such an inspiration for me. His influence and support over the coming year will be invaluable and I feel so lucky to be benefiting from it.

Tim continued; “I came away from it with lots to continue working on with each individual horse and I already feel I will be going into this coming season with a far better knowledge of the little things that will make a big difference to the end result.”

2016 will see the return of British Eventing’s popular MTBTG training series, as well as the Scholarship, with continued support from the generous title sponsors Keyflow and The Mark Todd Collection.
