Get ready for an amazing start to 2020! On January 29, World Champion, Ros Canter, will take time out of her busy schedule to star in a one-off appearance at Writtle University College in Essex.

Two of the horses ridden by the internationally famous equestrian were bred at WUC's successful Lordships Stud. The educational institution is delighted to honour this special relationship with an exciting event for the Essex area and beyond.

Ros will be accompanied by her internationally renowned coach, Caroline Moore FBHS. The experienced equestrians will showcase their skills in two must-see events. Sponsor Jump 4 Joy will supply equipment.

Between 9am and 4pm ticket holders are invited to observe Ros' and Caroline's coaching sessions as they place a series of riders and horses - with a range of experience - through their paces.

From 7pm to 10pm, Ros will showcase the skills that won her the 'World Champion' individual title at the World Equestrian Games in 2018, and allowed the British Eventing Team to scoop up a gold. Using a range of horses, she and Caroline will demonstrate the popular Training To Win programme in one of Writtle University College's large indoor arenas, which will have been outfitted with grandstand seating. 

Vice-Chancellor Professor Tim Middleton said: "We're delighted to welcome Ros Canter, Caroline Moore and their team to Writtle University College's specialist equine campus. We have a very special link with Ros, as she rides two horses bred at our on-campus Lordships Stud: Lordships Parc Royale and Lordships Graffalo. We look forward to introducing Ros, Caroline and our visitors to WUC's extensive facilities."

Visitors to the event can gain CPD points, accredited by The Pony Club and British Eventing if required. Hot and cold food will be available to purchase throughout the day and during the demonstration's interval. Visitors can shop for equine-related items at the on-campus retail fair. 

Tickets are available at www.writtle.ac.uk/roscanter.

Places are limited so early booking is advised. To view the coaching sessions is £15, the evening demonstration is £25 and combination tickets to both events are priced at £35.
