Webinar: Day in the Life of a Sports Horse

For our next webinar, we are delighted to be joined by two Olympians. On Wednesday 27 March at 7pm both international eventer Sam Griffiths and Grand Prix dressage rider Richard Davison will join us to discuss a day in the life of the horses at both these top rider’s yards.

The evening will include a discussion about how they maximise positive welfare experiences for equine athletes and why this is such an important part of managing sports horses. Roly Owers will chair the evening and the structured discussion, and then Sam and Richard will participate in a live Q&A. REGISTER HERE
