Yogi Breisner to judge British Eventing’s Baileys Jump Training Championship

British Eventing has confirmed that the Olympic eventing Team GB chef d’equip Yogi Breisner will join the expert panel of judges for BE’s pre-season competition, Jump Training. The series, sponsored by Baileys Horse Feeds takes place from January to March and culminates with the championship at Solihull Equestrian Centre on 23 March where Yogi and BE’s National Under-18 Coach Caroline Moore will judge the finalists.

This training style showjumping competition gives both BE members and non-members the chance to gain invaluable feedback from expert BE Accredited Coaches on their skills in three levels of class: BE80, BE90 and BE100.

Phase 1 involves a course walk in small groups with a coach

Phase 2 is where riders receive a guided warming up session

Phase 3 the first part of the competition, whereby combinations jump their first round

Phase 4 this is where riders get feedback from the coach on their round

Phase 5 riders then get to jump again taking on board the feedback from their first round!

New this year is the introduction of teams for Jump Training. This involves three combinations (one from each class) who are entering the competition as normal, nominating themselves as a team.
