Mark Todd Bridging the Gap series underway for 2019

The Mark Todd Bridging the Gap (MTBTG) training series is well underway for 2019, with courses taking place around the country aiming to help riders bridge the gap between Intermediate and Advanced/3* classes.

 

The training programme provides fantastic opportunities for riders aiming to move into Advanced or 3* competition or who are working towards a more established 3* level, and was initiated by experienced BE Accredited Coaches, Gill Watson MBE FBHS and Lizzel Winter FBHS. Kindly sponsored by The Mark Todd Collection, the Bridging the Gap training programme (which also includes free course walks and coaching support at key events) has become hugely popular since its launch in 2013 and continues to grow year on year.

The Scholarship

The MTBTG training programme also includes a fantastic Scholarship scheme. The Scholarship will be the culmination of the training programme hosted throughout 2019, where the lucky winner of the BE Mark Todd Bridging the Gap Scholarship will win a fantastic sponsorship and prize package worth £3000, generously provided by The Mark Todd Collection and Keyflow Feeds.

Upcoming Dates

MTBTG training dates run regularly throughout the year, and an updated list can be found on our training courses page. Gill and Lizzel also run regular course walks at key 3* and Advanced events throughout the season – find upcoming dates here:
