Filming. Before Christmas, we returned to film with dressage rider Dan Greenwood who taught two lessons to up and coming riders. Previously, we filmed renowned trainer Pammy Hutton teaching yard rider Davey on her own 5 year old and daughter-in-law Abigail was put through her paces!
Next, we are filming classical dressage trainer David Pincus (former rider at the Spanish Riding School and pupil of Dr Reiner Klimke) teaching his daughter Lucy, who has been making a name for herself on homebred horses and ponies from the Sheepcote Stud.
