Announcing Speakers for Sport Performance Days.

Friday 21 January 2011

Don't forget to sign up for 25 February, 2011 at Deeside College, North Wales and 26 February, 2011 at Pencoed College, South Wales for what we are calling Sports Performance Days. 

The sessions will include a number of generic sessions, such as Veterinary problems and ‘Why horses break down’, Sport Psychology and fitness with a good mix of practical and theory sessions. All sessions are unmounted, so you are not required to bring your horse with you. 

Spaces are very limited and you must be resident in Wales and British Showjumping member, for further details see the earlier News story on this page
