Triple Olympic dressage gold medallist, Charlotte Dujardin CBE, will appear at Myerscough College’s International Equine Arena next month.

CHARLOTTE DUJARDIN

To riders and equestrian fans around the world, Charlotte needs no introduction. The triple Olympic Gold Medalist and Britain's most successful dressage rider in history will be giving a rare, through the levels masterclass on Saturday, February 29th.

Charlotte will be working with a number of horses through the day, as she demonstrates the training techniques that have kept her on podiums around the world for years. Charlotte has done several short demonstrations at shows in the UK, but very rarely has she done a masterclass working through the levels with young horses through to Grand Prix. As Olympic year is upon us, this is a unique occasion to learn from one of the best in the world, in an intimate setting.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE   https://bit.ly/30dgVUv   

Doors will open at 10.30am with the masterclass commencing at 12 noon until approximately 4.15pm.

Charlotte says: ‘’It's with a lot of excitement that I can announce my first masterclass of the year.

‘’I have done several short demonstrations at shows in the UK over the years, but it's quite rare that I find the time for a full, through the levels masterclass here in the UK. Given it is Olympic year, this may be the only one at the moment, so I am really excited about this.

‘’I will be working with a number of horses through the day, as I show you my training techniques from young horse through to Grand Prix, as well as sharing stories and tips with all of you.

‘’Myerscough College and University Centre is one of the leading land-based and sports-specialist institutions in the UK. They play host to several national and international dressage competitions and provide a wonderful arena for me to do something like this.

‘’I look forward to seeing some of you there and enjoying a special day with you and the horses.’’

Charlotte is no stranger to Myerscough, having competed in a Grand Prix event held at the International Equine Arena last year.
