An exciting line up of riders has been confirmed for a dressage masterclass taking place on 9 April.

The masterclass is one of many attractions at the forthcoming British Open Show Jumping Championships (7-10 April), held at the Birmingham’s NEC.

The demo will be led by 2009 HOYS Equestrian of the Year Richard Davison, who will highlight the diversity of dressage alongside his wife Gillian, international Grand Prix dressage rider, and his youngest son Joe, currently British national under-18 showjumping champion.

Richard, triple Olympian and captain of the British Dressage team who is aiming for the 2012 Olympics, regularly trains with top show jumpers. He will demonstrate a range of training tips to show how fun and uncomplicated dressage can be across all disciplines.

The masterclass is part of a jam-packed schedule, which includes puissance, scurry driving, the Winter Premier Grand Prix and international show jumping classes.
