The latest addition to the 2019 Dodson & Horrell Masterclass series saw Brand Ambassadors Captain Mark Phillips, Zara Tindall and Lauren Hough host an exclusive evening session at Unicorn Equestrian Centre, providing the audience access to expert advice from top professionals in the showjumping and eventing worlds. A £500 donation will be made to the Ella Popely Memorial Fund.
For those who were unable to attend the evening, the two demonstrations can be watched on the Dodson & Horrell YouTube channel using the following links:

The two 45 minute demonstrations, which were compèred by Spencer Sturmey, covered an array of exercises and techniques which included warm-up routines, jump off turns and simulated cross country riding including angles, corners and barrels. The evening culminated in a question and answer session which saw special guest AP McCoy join in.
The attendees were given the chance to watch the experts work up close and had the opportunity to ask questions, meet and greet the riders and take home a free bag of feed from the Dodson & Horrell Performance Range. Zara rode two top horses from her string; Watkins who is heading to Luhmuhlen and Class Affair who finished ninth in the CCI4*-L section at Bramham International Horse Trials. Lauren rode two mares; Delilah a seven-year-old who has just recently jumped in the Young Horse classes in Hamburg and Candy who has jumped up to 1.45m level.
