The Training and Education team are delighted to be able to release the full timetable and rider line up for this year’s National Judges Convention.

Presenting the day are none other than Stephen Clarke, legendary 5* FEI Judge, and the world renowned rider and trainer Ferdi Eilberg. The top duo will head a full day of analysis and discussion with a great line up of riders representing levels from Novice through to Grand Prix.

The day commences at 10am with a welcome introduction before leading on to the morning session which will cover Novice to Advanced Medium. The afternoon session focuses on Prix St Georges and above, finishing with the pinnacle of the sport, Grand Prix. There will be plenty of time allowed for questions, with several slots programmed in throughout the day to break for healthy discussion.

Joining our presenters is a talented group of riders and horses. Presenting at Novice and Elementary level will be Jayden Brown with Emma Blundell’s MSJ Fame and Atterupgaards O2. Jayden has been resident rider at Mount St John for the past year and has enjoyed much success across the National competition scene with his team of lovely horses.

Amy Woodhead will cover the levels of Advanced Medium and Prix St Georges with Chateau X and Branduardi. The chestnut stallion Branduardi, owned by Victoria Peace, recently qualified for the NAF Five Star Winter Championships at Prix St Georges level so will without doubt be an exciting watch both for now and the future.

The penultimate rider of the day is Lisa Marriot, who is travelling to the Convention with Valucio. Lisa will show the Intermediate I movements with her nine year old gelding whom she has produced through the levels.

South Yorkshire rider Becky Moody will be bringing two of her horses to Bishop Burton for the day. The first of these, Heavenly Kiss BS, will represent Medium level whilst the popular Carinsio will close the day by showing the Grand Prix movements in action.

The Judges Convention takes place on 17 April 2018 and is once again kindly supported by the BDSC.
