Video Diary. Behaviourist Tessa Horan shows a typical schooling session with 7 yr old PRE gelding Terry who returns to work after two years off. The focus is on rhythm and teaching him to respond to lighter aids (free to watch).
Filming. We recently filmed up and coming eventer Sam Ecroyd who, without doubt, is a star in the making! Sam is aiming for the Junior European Championships this summer. He jumped three horses for us including his two top boys and a youngster, using a variety of clever jumping exercises and giving an excellent commentary.
Previously, we filmed fellow eventer Franky Reid-Warrilow, who is making her mark at 3* level and has been selected to represent GB at the European 2* Championships. Shortly after filming, Franky came 4th in the 2* at Barbury in top company and also took best Brit and best female prizes!
Site development. Horse Hero is now fully 'mobile friendly' for smart phones and tablets, so you can make the most of our amazing training videos when you are with your horse, before you get on to ride!
