BRITISH EVENTING HOME COACHES DAY 22 FEBRUARY 2022 AT VALE VIEW EQUESTRIAN

Through the designers eye….” 

The 2022 Home Coaches Day aims to be a highly educational day for all. Working with two of the country’s leading cross country course designers Eric Winter and Helen West we look at modern day course design.

Using a large all weather facility the focus will be on siting of combinations, how profiles, speed and topography affects take off and landings, the affect of dressing, colour and ground rails and other factors that go into xc design up through the levels.

Whether you are a rider, a coach or a budding course designer this will be a huge learning day with lots of interaction and discussion.
