    The first will take place on 26 Januaryand is open to riders competing at all levels. The day will focuss on showjumping with Ruth Williams and cross-country with Helen Bell.

    The second day is for juniors – aged between 14 and 18 – and will take place on 9 February, although places for this day are limited. This day will cover dressage, show jumping and cross-country and Helen will be joined by Karen Dixon and Chris McGrann.

    “These days are an excellent opportunity for everyone to get training and ride safely overfences,” said Helen.

    The training days cost £30 per rider. Further details are available from Helen Bell (tel: 01845 587207) or email: manor-born@ukonline.co.uk
