Who is the most celebrated trainer in the world of equestrian sport at the moment? Almost certainly Chris Bartle, who has just coached Britain’s eventing squad to team and individual gold medals at the World Equestrian Games.
Stubbing Court Training Ltd (SCT) is delighted to be able to offer its equine apprentices the chance to train with Chris at an exclusive Masterclass at Vale View Equestrian in Leicestershire on 19 November.
SCT Chief Executive Belinda Turner MBE said: “For many years we have provided our apprentices and their employers with incredible opportunities to learn from the very best British-based coaches and riders through our Masterclass Series. These act to inspire and encourage best practice, and have been very popular and successful. To gain access to Chris Bartle’s outstanding teaching and horsemanship for a second year running is fantastic and demonstrates his belief in great coaching from grassroots levels through to the elite.”
There are limited places available at the Masterclass, and will be allocated as a reward to those apprentices who have met their targets for achievement.
After a superb riding career that included winning Badminton and competing on championship teams for Britain in both dressage and eventing, Chris Bartle coached the German eventing team for a decade, winning multiple gold medals at World, Olympic and European Championship level. He became coach to the British eventing team after the 2016 Rio Olympics, and in the two years since Britain has won team gold at both the 2017 European Championships and the 2018 World Equestrian Games.
SCT’s equine apprenticeships allow young people to earn a wage and gain valuable qualifications while learning from excellent professionals, giving them the best possible start to working life. It provides all-round support and advice to both apprentices and employers and, through its superb network of contacts within the horse world, is perfectly suited to fit the right person to the right set-up.
