A horse-riding champion is set to visit the Essex land college where two of her horses were bred.

Three-day eventing world champion Ros Canter will be showing her skills at Writtle University College (WUC) in Chelmsford, where her horses were bred at its successful Lordships Stud.

Writtle said it was "delighted" at the visit, which takes place on Wednesday, January 29.

She will be accompanied by her internationally renowned coach, Caroline Moore FBHS. The experienced equestrians will showcase their skills at two events.

From 7pm to 10pm, Ros will show the skills that won her the 'World Champion' individual title at the World Equestrian Games in 2018, and allowed the British Eventing Team to scoop up a gold.

Using a range of horses, she and Caroline will demonstrate the popular Training To Win programme in one of Writtle University College's large indoor arenas, which will have been outfitted with grandstand seating.

Vice-chancellor Professor Tim Middleton said: "We're delighted to welcome Ros Canter, Caroline Moore and their team to Writtle University College's specialist equine campus. We have a very special link with Ros, as she rides two horses bred at our on-campus Lordships Stud: Lordships Parc Royale and Lordships Graffalo. We look forward to introducing Ros, Caroline and our visitors to WUC's extensive facilities."
