National and World Championship Competitions are fundamentally based on the assessment of conformation and athleticism traits, presentation of horses in hand and a theory test. Training days provide a fantastic opportunity to engage with some of the best professionals in the business and supports preparation for competition but also educational for those who are not inspired to compete.
