BHS Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire were thrilled to host Sylvia Loch on Sunday 24 April 2016. The event programme covered ‘An Introduction to the Classical Seat’ and focused on three main areas: On the Seat, The Reins and Bend and Lateral Work. The event featured four BHS members and their horses followed by a demo from Sylvia and her Lusitano stallion Prazer.
Two lucky volunteers were then plucked out of the audience for a Schoolmaster Lesson onboard Prazer! The event took place at Houghton Hall Equestrian Centre and was well attended with an audience of over one hundred people.
