SEIB Search for a Star Master Class set to enthral on Master Class Friday at Your Horse Live

SEIB Insurance Brokers are pleased to launch the new SEIB Search for a Star Master Class with top show producers, Richard Ramsay, Katie Jerram-Hunnable, Chris Hunnable and Sarah Chapman which will take place at Your Horse Live at Stoneleigh Park on Friday 9th November.

The Search for a Star Master Class will provide an overview of showing and will be aimed at being informative for amateur riders planning to get underway with showing their horses. The line-up for the master class includes several of the SEIB Search for a Star 2018 finalists, with a variety of different show horses attending - hunters, hacks, riding horses, working ponies, ex-racehorses, cobs and possibly mountain and moorlands.

Top show producer, judge and long-term Search for a Star stalwart, Richard Ramsay said: “We are very keen to de-bug the mystique of showing. It really is something that everyone can come and have a go at. This new master class is going to provide a great opportunity for people to find out much more about showing.”

The Search for a Star Master Class will be run as a show class: there will be an initial go-round, individual shows and the horses and ponies will be stripped and trotted up and ridden by the ride judges. The judges will comment on the horses’ and ponies’ conformation, way of going and what the judges expect from them. Ride judges Chris Hunnable and Sarah Champman will ride each of the horses and explain their thoughts to provide a great insight as to what a ride judge is thinking as they are riding the horses in a showing class.

Another first for the Friday is the inclusion of the first ever competition at the event– the SEIB Search for a Star Mountain and Moorland Championship. Fifteen top class mountain and moorland ponies, ridden and produced by amateur riders, have spent the summer qualifying around the country for this exciting new final. The winner of the final will be invited to take part in the SEIB Search for a Star Master Class later in the day.

SEIB Marketing Manager Nicolina Mackenzie said: “We are truly delighted to be a part of this exciting new day at Your Horse Live. Search for a Star will be entering its 23rd year next spring and there are ever increasing numbers of amateur riders keen to learn more about showing and we believe that the Search for a Star Master Class will provide them with an entertaining and educational insight into showing.”
