British Eventing Charitable Foundation Masterclasses 2017/18

Lucinda Green Masterclass

‘Mastering Modern Eventing’

The British Eventing Charitable Foundation Masterclasses provide the perfect opportunity to soak up the knowledge of some of the country’s top coaches over the winter months as they display a range of techniques, exercises and skills in these unmounted Masterclasses. Providing practical demonstrations on how to improve balance and security in the saddle, riders can look forward to a fun and informative evening with tips and advice to take away and put in to practice at home.

Open to BE members and non-members at all levels, the indoor Masterclasses will showcase combinations of all abilities as they are put through their paces by experienced BE Accredited Coaches; looking at the importance of correct cross country training, aimed at delivering an educational insight into modern cross country riding.

The 2017/2018 Masterclass series was a huge success. We would like to extend our thanks to the presenters, venues and volunteers for their help in making the evenings such a success, and to our customers for their continued support of British Eventing.
