What is Keyflow Bridging the Gap (BTG)?

Keyflow BTG is designed for riders aged 18 or over, who are competing at British Eventing 3* or Advanced, or working towards a more established 4* level.

Run by Gill Watson and Lizzel Winter, the series is comprised of training days and two-day camps at various venues. These primarily include individual flatwork sessions and group or individual jumping, as well as providing an excellent opportunity for riders to meet others who are sharing the same journey.

There may also be the opportunity for BTG participants to seek guidance from Gill or Lizzel at a few select events in the form of advice or course walks.

In addition, we at Keyflow have an extensive connection with the eventing world and our qualified team is here to help and support you with advice on feeding your horses. We also have some exciting ideas and treats in store, which will be announced as we move through 2021.

Who can apply?

Applicants must be aged 18 or over and competing at BE 3* or Advanced, or working towards an established 4* level: this must be reflected in the horse(s) brought to training days.
