***Tues 5th March - XC CLINIC AT STOCKLAND LOVELL.

***17th to 25th APRIL - MATT COACHING IN CANADA.

As seen on the news page, Matt has been invited to spend a week around the Calgary area to spread his 'BONZA WAY' philosophy of teaching.

***3rd to 6th MAY - COMMENTATING AT BADMINTON HORSE TRIALS.

Once again Matt will be helping with live commentary at Badminton on 'Badminton Radio'. The dressage commentary is normally done by Carl Hestor and Pammy Hutton. Carl's and Pammy's banter during the dressage tests can be both hilarious and harsh, but generally very entertaining. Matt steps in at the end of each dressage day to help give a days round up and discuss peoples views of the forth coming X Country. Matt is then full on pretty much all day xc day, and then again for the final show jumping on the final day. Don't forget to buy your radio ear pieces as you come through the gates.
