Showjumper and trainer Peter Murphy will lead the British Horse Society’s (BHS) National Spring Coaching Convention.

The convention days, which involve practical demonstrations from a highly respected rider or trainer, will be spread over two dates — at Merrist Wood, Guildford, Surrey on 13 April and Blackdyke Farm Riding Centre, Cumbria on 11 May.

Peter has competed on more than 10 Nations Cup teams and was part of the gold medal winning junior European team in 1983.

Based in Lancashire, he is also an accredited British Showjumping coach and a British Eventing team coach, working with the team towards the 2012 Olympics.

The event is open to all and the BHS training department would like to welcome everybody, from experienced competitors and coaches to those with a general interest in equestrianism.

These days count as continual professional development update days for BHS registered instructors.

Tickets are priced at £35 for BHS registered instructors and £40 all others attendees.
