A DATE for the diary for all riders is the National Access Conference on Saturday November 16 at British Horse Society Headquarters in Warwickshire.
This offers the chance to hear from expert speakers about project 2026, the future for access in England, Active Travel and more. There will also be opportunities to increase knowledge during interactive breakout sessions and great opportunities to network with others interested in equestrian access.
Experts Sarah Bucks and Will Steel will be running a 2026 surgery as a follow-up to their training days. Appointments have been booked with the Access Department in advance and prior to the conference to allow time for Sarah and Will to assess them. Appointments have been given on a first come, first served basis.
Daniel Bachmann Andersen became a household name to those passionate followers of the FEI dressage scene. Numerous Western European World Cup league wins followed, and this 28-year-old Danish rider is rapidly becoming a major star through his partnership with Blue Horse Stud and the string of talented stallions under his care at the esteemed Randbøl breeding and training centre.
This season, Daniel earned fourth spot in the World Cup Final on board Blue Hors Zack – the impressive Rousseau x Jazz stallion with major achievements in both the sports arena and the breeding industry – before going on to achieve further strong results at this summer’s FEI European Championships in Rotterdam.
From being a notable under 25s rider, he has progressed to become one of the most exciting talents of the modern dressage era. Daniel will make his first UK training appearance at this year’s National Convention in association with Harrison Clark Rickerbys.
