  • It was love at first sight! Laura saw a video of Alf (Mistral Hojris) and knew they were horsey soul mates! The partnership began five years ago when Alf was at Prix St Georges level. It hasn't all been plain sailing though, as he was a bit of a 'problem child'. Laura has taken it steadily and, aged 14, Alf is now a mature Grand Prix horse at the top of his game. Laura says fitness, suppleness, strength and variety are the keys to his routine at home, rather than 'drilling' the moves which he knows. She talks through the conformation of this Danish bred athlete who was her partner at the Beijing Olympics. A charming insight! (Filmed Jan '09.)

  • April's highlights contain priceless footage including three videos filmed behind the scenes at World Class Squad dressage training. There's a collection of pieces with National Dressage Champion, Maria Eilberg, who trains top horse Two Sox and stallion Rockstar, plus an interview and a video of Maria showing the management of her horses at home. Eventer Julie Tew works her Badminton partner, Sir Roselier, on the flat in two videos, providing a superb commentary on her preparation and execution of advanced moves. Plus there's vaulting, stable management, how to use a double bridle and guidance on a career with horses.

  • Teddy and Step are both five but because they are different builds, they are at different stages of training. Laura rides Step and Carl Cuypers rides the "elephant size" Teddy who is already bigger and heavier than Alf! The work they are doing seems similar, however, it's different in intensity. Step is able to collect and balance, take sitting trot and a deeper seat. Carl rides Teddy tactfully with shallow corners so he can maintain his balance. "Training them to become athletes starts now" says Laura, "so it's essential they have a forward-pushing hind leg. But there's no rush, they will have plenty of time to develop strength before doing advanced moves."
