Training day
Would you like to learn more about riding test and style jumping and have a free day out? There is space for four people to watch a BRC Master Judge training day on Sunday 1 November, at Kings Equestrian in Herefordshire.

Demo riders will be put through their paces before getting judges feedback. A great opportunity for those who want to know what judges are looking for in these disciplines.
