Equestrian Management Agency has announced that Olympic Champion, Jessica von Bredow Werndl and Benjamin Werndl will head to the World Equestrian Center this 8 - 9 December 2023 to give a rare, joint masterclass at the expanding venue.
Both Jessica and Benjamin will work with a variety of rider and horse combinations from young horses through the Grand Prix across two days, giving a glimpse into the training methods which have taken them onto podiums for years.
Carl Hester Masterclass
Equestrian Management Agency began their relationship with the World Equestrian Center in the early years of the sites build, entering into discussions about hosting events with them during early 2021; a team they describe as ambitious, visionary but incredibly collaborative and down to earth.
The first masterclass at the venue was held in December 2022 with dressage favourite, Carl Hester, to a packed arena, who enjoyed every word of Carls wisdom and knowledge as well as his signature wit.
It marked the first endeavour by the agency in the US, since it opened an office there in June of last year, with plans to continue to expand its events division internationally in 2023, both at their base in the UK and aboard.
Sabine Schut-Kery Masterclass
Tokyo medallist and one of the most respected riders in the sport, Sabine Schut Kery will be the first to start masterclasses at the venue this year, as she heads there on 15 April 2023 to work through the levels with a number of horse and rider pairings.
WEC has cited just how much they are looking forward to welcoming such renowned clinicians at their venue; a testament to its growing reputation as one of the most exciting places for equestrian sport in the world.
EMA continues to move into the year at pace, continuing with a strong roster of represented riders, as well as a focus on their recent EMA Academy launch, which is seeing growth of new members each day. They will continue to work with brands such as CHIO Aachen this year; a collaboration they continue to enjoy and African Horse Safaris beginning as a key client for 2023.
EMA has been the strategic management team behind some of the most upcoming and well-known riders in the sport for approaching ten years, notably Charlotte Dujardin who has been with the company exclusively since 2012.
With three key agents and with plans to expand the roster further in 2023, the company has a few more announcements in the coming weeks, but until then, all event tickets are on sale and more details can be found on the EMA website.
