Carl Hester Teams up with Van Holst Horses for Exclusive Masterclass at Bolesworth International

Building on the huge success of Carl Hester's extremely popular demonstration at last year's Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show, the maestro himself is once again set to wow the crowds this June.

The Carl Hester Masterclass will take place on the Thursday afternoon of the show, June 14 and promises to provide spectators with a host of tips and advice for riding and producing dressage stars of the future.

Well known breeders and producers, Anne and Gertjan Van Olst whose legendary stallion Negro was the sire of Valegro will be bringing and showcasing some of their other top stallions including Everdale, winner of the KWPN Performance Test in 2012 and Glamourdale.

The stallions they will be bringing will represent some of the most exciting talent in the sport of dressage today.

Working alongside their good friend, Carl throughout the masterclass, Anne and the team will demonstrate and work with some of the most gifted up and coming dressage horses throughout Europe, with Gertjan on hand for advice and commentary.

Anne and their stable jockey, British international young dressage rider Lottie Fry are both planning to ride in the CDI*** classes.

Said Bolesworth International Show President Nina Barbour:

"We said we have big ambitions for Dressage at Bolesworth, and I believe this year takes the sport to the next level at our fantastic venue which international riders were full of praise for last year. With the masterclass as well as the CDI**** our aim is for the event to be a huge hit with both competitors and visitors – there will truly be something for everyone at The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show this year!"

Dressage big guns are once again heading to Cheshire's premier event to provide a feast of sport and entertainment with top class dressage taking place on the Tuesday evening, Wednesday and Thursday in the CDI*** which Carl is also set to compete in.

Fans can enjoy watching top horses and riders with a Small Tour Prix St George getting the competition action underway on the Tuesday evening – June 12. Spectators can access the showground free of charge to enjoy this class.

Competition continues on Wednesday, June 13 with the CDI*** Grand Prix, the Small Tour Inter 1 Freestyle Dressage to Music as well as the Viewing Trials for the Young Dressage Horse World Championships at five, six and seven-year-old stages.

On the Thursday classes include an Advanced Medium, Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle as well as an FEI Pony Team Test, a Viewing Trial for the Pony Europeans later in the year.

A second pony class, the FEI Pony Freestyle to Music Test takes places on the Saturday morning.

Major British and Continental dressage stars are heading to this year's show which runs June 12 to 17.
