| The British Equine
Saturday 4th November 2000
The 10th British Equine Event, opened its doors at
9am on Saturday 4th November. As an indoor event, it was unaffected by the
recent bad weather - though the day turned out bright and sunny. The halls were
buzzing almost immediately as visitors browsed through the fantastic range of
trade stands and watched demonstrations by Kyra Kyrklund (Dressage, the basis
of all training), Andrew Nicholson (Selecting and working the young event
horse), Graham and Tina Fletcher (How to improve your show jumping), Bob and
Christine Mayhew, David Lloyd (Western), Mikael Holmstrom (The conformation of
the riding horse) and many more .
||The event which originally
started with half a dozen trade stands exhibiting alongside a promotion of
British Performance Sport Horses has steadily developed into one of the UK's
premier horse events"
Karen Pearson, Equestrian Coordinator and Advisor to the Royal Agricultural
Society of England.
|The British Equine Event has
always encouraged representation by all British Breeds from the very biggest to
the smallest. Some wonderful demonstrations displaying a huge variety of breeds
