Trot North is hosting ‘An Evening with the Masters’, Christoph Hess and John Ledingham held at Myerscough College, Preston, Lancashire, on Wednesday, March 11 at 7.30pm – doors open 6pm – and is supported by TopSpec.

The lecture/demonstration, ‘Flatwork and Jumping – What’s So Different’, aims to explain what is required to succeed in the different disciplines and will take a look at their training techniques and how they differ – or not.

The evening will feature German dressage specialist, Christoph Hess and Irish Show jumper, John Ledingham – both bringing their many years’ experience to the event which is set to provide a fascinating insight into how flatwork and jumping work alongside each other.

A former director of training for the German National Federation, Christoph is an FEI ‘I’ judge in both dressage and eventing. He is actively involved in the training and education of judges and instructors worldwide.

Legendary international rider and coach, John Ledingham, has enjoyed a long and successful showjumping career and is an official coach to the World Class Showjumping Equine Pathway, which aims to identify horses that have the potential to be future medal winners.
