What the participants say:

"I would just like to express my thanks for the Bridging the Gap course walk I attended with Lizzel Winter on Friday at Osberton. I can't explain how influential this was to me jumping a clear round my first CCI2*. Not only did it help me gain confidence and control my nerves but it helped me understand the course and the questions asked."
