Top riders and trainers are set to appear at the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) International trade fair at the NEC in Birmingham next week (19-21 February).

Eventers Mary King and Nicola Wilson, paradressage rider Natasha Baker, dressage rider Laura Bechtolsheimer and trainers Yogi Breisner, Jane Holderness-Roddam and Jennie Loriston-Clarke are all due to take part in the discussions.

TV equestrian sports commentator Philip Ghazala will host question-and-answer sessions on each day.

“We are thrilled that so many riders have given up their time to take part in these discussions,” said Claire Thomas, of BETA International.

“This is the start of an incredibly exciting time for the entire equestrian trade and what better way to celebrate the Olympics taking place here in the UK than to invite along to the show those who have personal experience of the Games?”

Entry is open to the trade only and free on pre-registration at www.beta-int.com.
