Training Days Take Flight with New Partner EquiJet



With the winter season taking shape in Wellington, FL, M&R Equestrian Services' Training Days was abuzz with activity for its fifth week of events at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in nearby West Palm Beach.


The word is officially out on the brainchild of Olympians Alberto Michan (ISR) and Juan Andrés Rodriguez (GUA), with riders of all levels, from international stalwarts to young up-and-comers and everything in between, shipping in for productive training sessions over a full course of show quality fences, set by FEI course designers. Founded by Michan and Rodriguez in 2019, Training Days are Wellington, FL's most unique training opportunity. Each Tuesday, exhibitors can ride in a stress-free and affordable show-like atmosphere, at heights from 1.0m to 1.40m. The aim of Training Days is to help develop horses and riders and make opportunities for both high-quality training and positive show experiences more accessible for all.


Training Days offer an opportunity for riders to focus on the details, a sentiment that has aligned it well with new partner EquiJet. The Training Days program is proud to welcome EquiJet, a premier partner for equine air transportation, for its 2020-2021 season. EquiJet similarly prides itself on its exceptional customer service, making horse travel, whether to a local show or across the world, as stress-free and comfortable as possible for its equine passengers.


“EqiJet is looking forward to being a part of the M & R Equestrian Training Series this winter. We believe that there is great value in the opportunities that these series of events provide to equestrians of all levels," remarked EquiJet founder, Bastian Schroeder. "We are very excited about what the future holds for our relationship with this event."

Training Days Quotables


"This was our first time coming here, and I think it's a great idea. It's simple. For me, right now, that's incredibly important when it comes to organizing my schedule. The jumps are beautiful, it was simple to come—you don't have to worry about having to wait in a show office—and it was a great afternoon." - Kristen VanderVeen
