Two of the UK’s top riders will be sharing their expertise in a series of lecture demos across England and Wales next month.

From 24 to 30 January Badminton and Burghley champion Oliver Townend and show jumping legend Geoff Billington will combine their talent, knowledge and humour in the second leg of the Champions Tour.

The duo is a tried-and-tested formula, having worked together during the tour that ran during November.

“The tour went really well — it’s great to do something different from what I normally do, and to work with Geoff has definitely been an experience,” remarked Oliver.

The demos start on 24 January at Towerlands Equestrian Centre in Essex, finishing at Wellington Riding in Hampshire a week later.

“This really is an evening of entertainment for all the family: ‘laugh and learn’ has been key to its popularity and success,” explained Alan Beaumont, show director of the Champions Tour.

“Throughout the evening the riders progress up through the grades with a range of horses of all different levels and abilities,” continued Alan.
