International eventer Nick Gauntlett is to be guest judge at this year’s Baileys Horse Feeds Jump Training Championships.
Gauntlett will officiate at the championships alongside long-standing British Eventing Accredited Coach David Sheerin.
The final qualifying competitions take place later this week, with the top 25 percent from each class in this year’s Jump Training series qualifying for the championships on March 9 at Moreton Morrell College in Warwickshire.
Each winner will win prizes from series title sponsor Baileys and training vouchers from British Eventing, as well as a day’s training clinic with former Olympic and World medal winner, Blyth Tait.
Entries are now open for those who have qualified for the Championships.
The training style show jumping competition gives both BE Members and non-Members the chance to gain invaluable feedback from expert BE Accredited Coaches on their skills in three levels of class: BE80, BE90 and BE100.
- Phase 1 involves a course walk in small groups with a Coach
- Phase 2 is where riders receive a guided warming up session
- Phase 3 the first part of the competition, whereby combinations jump their first round
- Phase 4 this is where riders get feedback from the coach on their round
- Phase 5 riders then get to jump again taking on board the feedback from their first round.
