Kicking off during the early months of the 2016 Eventing season British Eventing are pleased to bring details of this year’s Mark Todd Bridging the Gap (MTBTG) training series and Scholarship.
Sponsored by Keyflow and Mark Todd Collection and designed specifically for those who are aiming to compete at Advanced and 2* level or working towards a more established 3*, the MTBTG training series aims to 'Bridge The Gap' between Young Riders and World Class.
Training takes place throughout the UK with our experienced Bridging the Gap coaches, along with course walks at specific 2*, Advanced and 3* events, topics covered include; cross country preparation, dressage and show jumping clinics, video analysis and competition practice.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, Keyflow and the Mark Todd Collection, we are also able to offer one lucky rider the chance to win a fantastic Scholarship package, including feed, clothing and training and mentorship from Sir Mark Todd.
2015 Scholarship winner, Tim Cheffings commented on what it means to gain from the generous support; “I can't tell you how excited I was to win the MTBTG Scholarship. Mark’s success has been built on determination, hard work and love of the sport, which is such an inspiration for me. His influence and support over the coming year will be invaluable and I feel so lucky to be benefiting from it.”
