Action-packed line-up for premier equestrian event!
The extraordinarily talented three day event rider Sir Mark Todd (presented by Keyflow and Patch & Acre) will be headlining this year’s Westcountry Equine Fair.
The event promises to be an action-packed two days with a fabulous line-up of equestrian stars featuring in the indoor arena and outdoor marquee covered arena and incredible shopping opportunities ‘for the horse, for the rider and for Christmas’. It will provide horse enthusiasts of all ages, levels and disciplines with a full schedule of exciting entertainment over the two days and will take place at Westpoint in Exeter on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th December 2015.
Sir Mark Todd has a wealth of experience, which he will showcase in his master classes at the event. Mark pioneered three-day eventing in New Zealand, being a member of the first New Zealand team to contend a world championship in 1978. He has 4 Badminton titles, 5 Burghley titles and has won two successive individual Olympic Gold medals in 1984 and 1988, which he did on his horse of a lifetime, Charisma.
Aside from his eventing success Mark was also awarded the title of the FEI rider of the 20th century in 2000 and was bestowed an MBE in 1984 and a CBE in 1995. More recently, in 2013, he was awarded a Knighthood and made a Knights Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to the sport of eventing.
The South West Parelli Team will be sharing their expertise helping you promote a calm, willing, brave and athletic horse. The methods used are suitable for all horses, regardless of age, size or breed and can be useful in a range of disciplines from dressage and show jumping to hacking and hunting.
