Training & Preparation was the key to success for TSR Pathway Riders taking part in the Master Class Ride Off! 42 Pathway Riders from across the UK converged on the TSR Summer Show at Onley Equestrian Centre, Rugby to take part in the TSR Master Class Ride Off. It was their big chance to be selected for one of 4 places in the TSR/HOYS Showing Master Class with trainer Michael Eilberg on the 9th October at Horse of the Year Show, NEC, Birmingham.
Equestrian Life readers Jane Rawden, Jessica Cheetham, Macy Dugdale, Leeane Oliver, Elli Cooper, Bryony Percival, & Michelle Findlay all did incredibly well to be selected for the Ride off beating over 150 talent spotted riders. On the day they all performed amazingly in their age groups and set the standard high.
