The first ever BHS Master Class and Lecture Series to be hosted by Royal Windsor Horse Show will take place between Thursday 8th May – Sunday 11 May covering all aspects of horse care, training and sport. The programme will take place in the Copper Arena on all four days and among the highlights will be a master class by Yogi Breisner FBHS, British Eventing World Class Performance Manager and Olympic team trainer.
The series will cover all aspects of horsemanship from training and schooling horses, to competing and simply having fun. The varied programme features everything from the discipline of the Riding Club Quadrille to the sport of BHS TREC. BHS TREC, based on the French discipline “Le Trec”, is designed to test a horse and rider combination through a range of activities, combining the requirements of trail riding with jumping and correct basic flatwork.
The new Royal Windsor programme will also highlight the BHS’s Riding and Road Safety Test promoting the importance of improving safety on increasingly busy roads in order to minimise the risks involved and potentially save not only the rider's life, but also that of their horse.
