On September 27th Oak Grove hosted its first IEA Masterclass, this intensive training day was open to current and aspiring IEA team members.

Judged on the flat and over fences the day followed the format of an IEA show, horses were randomly selected for each pupil and students benefitted from the judging of Stephanie Bowers. After the initial judging, pupils were critiqued and given improvement suggestions before attempting the course a second time. The day also included demonstrations of hunter form, no stirrup equitation work and top level showjumping, before students perfected horsemanship details and put away their mounts for the evening.

Great improvement was shown by all who participated throughout the day and thoughtful critique provided plenty to work on before the first IEA show for our team.
