  • You'll find a great range of training videos in February '09 Highlights. Laura Bechtolsheimer starts the 6 year old Step on lateral work and she trains homebred Teddy's huge canter, Hannah Biggs works on self-carriage with her gorgeous Spanish stallion Torri, Chinese event rider Alex Hua Tian uses poles to soften the canter of his Advanced eventer and Irish show jumper Shane Breen practises related distances on his home-bred Cos I Can. Plus Richard Maxwell shows us how to ride a spooky horse, Rosie Howard demonstrates tricks training and there's veterinary advice too. All in all, a fairly typical month in the life of Horse Hero!

  • Laura Bechtolsheimer and Dr B give a masterclass on riding a Novice dressage test. Dr B tells us what is expected at this level. The first 4 or 5 stages of the scales of training need to be in evidence. The horse should show relaxation, rhythm, a steady contact and a little impulsion, but no collection and movement should not be too flashy. He also offers tips on ring-craft including how to maximise marks on poorer moves and minimise loss of marks on stronger moves. Dr B highlights a few of the questions in Novice 34. Laura then rides the test on her huge youngster Teddy, who gives a premier performance, as this is his first ever dressage test!

  • Dr Bechtolsheimer explains that an Elementary test is still early days in a horse's training. Judges will want to see evidence of the scales of training including relaxation, rhythm and a secure contact. But they will also want more impulsion, better straightness, the first degree of collection and some lateral work. Dr B says making a battle plan at home is essential so you have time to identify your weaknesses and work on them. "You can't expect to perform in a test what you haven't worked on at home. Getting a good mark starts before you enter the arena as judges like to see a confident looking horse and rider." Laura rides 6 year old Step in his first test!
