Filming. We recently filmed with dressage rider and trainer Leonie Smith who worked with natives including a Freisian and a cob and trained World Class Para rider Ashley. Previously, we returned to work with fellow dressage rider Dan Greenwood. Riding three horses for us, Dan demonstrated some very useful exercises to help with connection and suppleness which, oddly enough, we haven’t filmed ever before!
Previously, we returned to classical dressage trainer David Pincus who worked with up and coming young rider Olivia Towers. Olivia rode two horses we filmed a few months ago, so we could see the progression. She also rode a daughter of Scandic.
Next video. Dressage trainer Anna Brown builds power in Midnight's trot.
