Fans of Anky van Grunsven will have the chance to learn from their idol this December, when she presents a dressage masterclass at Olympia, the London International Horse Show.

The Olympic gold medal-winning star will be hosting the masterclass on Wednesday (17 December) at 6.30pm, before the freestyle to music class.

She will focus on specific test movements required for the freestyle and demonstrate on one of her young horses how she teaches them to execute flying changes, the half pass, piaffe, passage and extended trot.

Anky won the freestyle to music class at Olympia in 2007 and will be competing in the FEI World Cup dressage competition again this year. She said: “I always enjoy Olympia and have been lucky enough over the past few years to compete as well as take part in such demonstrations.”
