Grapevine Stories

Interview with Lucinda Green

Six times Badminton winner, Lucinda Green and I discuss the upcoming Badminton Horse trials and who could do well and be in the mix at the most prestigious Three Day Event in the world, that's now been absent from the Calendar since 2019. We also talk about how important it is that the Cross Country stays being the real core of the sport and how her Lucinda Green Academy is helping riders perfect the skill of cross country riding and fine-tuning the vital relationship between horse and rider.

Why not join The Lucinda Green Academy

Lucinda is passionate about XC and allowing the horse to think for himself whilst listening to you. 

Lucinda's "Greenprint" to confident XC has been developed over the 50 years she has been riding and teaching.  It is the foundation of XC training. 

The Lucinda Green XC Academy delivers the "Greenprint" monthly along with Video Learnings, Live discussions with well known equestrians, live Q&A's and management/mindset zoom sessions and a community of like minded XC riders supporting and cheering on one another.

The membership is open to join twice a year. The next opening is this August, to join the waitlist,

"The most amazing group of like minded people, following the advice of the wonderful Lucinda and her super relented guests. Personally it is the best thing I did last year and even though eventing is difficult where I live the advice transfers to the other disciplines"
