Booking and Information

Whether you ride, show jump, coach, course build, judge, a parent or just have an interest in show jumping, this day is for you!

Mark McGowan is an FEI Level 3 international course designer who has designed courses all over the world including several European Championships, having recently returned from building the $100,000 Bentley Grand Prix at the opening ceremony for Hits Del Mar in the wonderful city of San Diego, California.

**BHS Coach's will receive a full 6 CPD Points on the completion of this course**

The day will be a mixture of both theory and practical, with a very hands on approach to course design.

Mark will help you understand the mind of the course builder with the position of jumps in the arena, lines, distances and technicalities, as well as competition rules, tables and speeds. Everyone will have the chance to build fences, walk the course and discuss the distances, lines, approach etc. (The perfect opportunity to get hands on).

We will then compare different combinations jumping round the same course, giving everyone a chance to learn from watching the various rounds to see what changes can be made to the horse and rider combination to help them jump those important clear rounds.

Cost - £45 for APC's/App centre staff (6 CPD points), £50 general admission
