Top international dressage rider, Emile Faurie, is set to inspire the audience at Hadlow College on Wednesday 27th March 2019. Emile will be bringing four of his horses to demonstrate his training methods from young horses to Grand Prix. He has represented Great Britain at Olympic, World and European Championships level, making him one of Britain’s most successful riders.
The event is being organised by Hadlow College’s second year BSc Equine Training and Management students as part of their event module. They have been responsible for securing the rider and will be for marketing and promoting the event and on the day event management. The annual lecture demonstration is always a highlight of the Hadlow calendar for students and the public. It follows on from the success of last year’s sell out Mark Todd demonstration.
In 1993, Emile won his first senior medals at the European Championships in Lipica, Slovakia with Virtu, a horse with which had been crowned British National Champion, as part of the Silver Medal Team whilst they took Individual Bronze.
His next team horse was Legrini who he trained from the age of four up to International Grand Prix level and they were then selected for the 1997 and 2001 Europeans as well as the 1998 World Equestrian Games.
At the European Championships at Hickstead in 2003, he won a bronze medal with Rascher Hopes - the same horse he took to the Olympic Games in 2000. After a five-year gap, Emile was back in British Championship teams for the 2017 Europeans where the team finished fourth.
Last year Emile partnered Dono Di Maggio who he campaigned very successfully in Europe including scoring a double victory at the Aachen CDI3* and podium places at Fritzens CDI4*.
Hadlow students will be holding a raffle on the evening to raise funds for Emile’s own Emile Faurie Foundation. The foundation supports children who might not have been able to otherwise access riding. Emile will be donating a lesson with himself to a lucky winner as one of the prizes.
Doors open 6pm, event runs from 7pm until 10pm.
Advanced tickets £25.00, Hadlow College students £10.00
