Bridging the Gap Scholarship

As an extension to the MTBTG series, British Eventing has teamed up with The Mark Todd Collection and Keyflow Feeds to provide an amazing sponsorship and support package for a small group of talented riders, to be known as the 'Todd Squad'.

All riders that take part in one or more of the ridden MTBTG training sessions during 2018 or 2019 are eligible to apply for the MTBTG Scholarship. Up to six applicants will be invited to a training and selection day on Monday 30 September 2019, where the winners will be announced.

In this exciting initiative, the winning applicants will each receive the following sponsorship and support package for the subsequent eventing season:

  • Invitation to attend three group training sessions in 2020 with the legendary Sir Mark Todd
  • A year’s worth of Mark Todd Keyflow feed for one horse to the value of £500, plus nutritional advice
  • Clothing, tack and horse-wear from the Mark Todd Collection to the value of £500

We are looking for riders who are working hard to fulfil their competitive ambitions but who perhaps lack the resources to access world class training and support. Sir Mark Todd will work with MTBTG coaches Gill Watson and Lizzel Winter to select the winners, along with representatives from Keyflow Feeds and the Mark Todd Collection.

Terms and Conditions for the MTBTG scholarship can be found HERE.
