  • Laura lunges her new 4 year old, Stepdance (known as Step), in preparation for riding him. She explains why she does this and shows the Bechtolsheimer's preferred equipment for lungeing, which is both simple and unusual! Laura talks about how she uses body language, why moving around the arena with the horse is important and how being on the lunge has helped Step go from 'trotting for a 10' (he was trained to do this for the sales in Germany, where they recently bought him) to being able to just chill!

  • Putting a saddle and numnah on your horse's back may seem fairly basic but if it's done badly, it can cause unnecessary problems. Assuming you have already asked a saddle-fitter to check your saddle fits correctly, top dressage rider, Laura Bechtolsheimer offers some handy hints to ensure it sits well on your horse's back, there are no pressure points and everything is comfortable!

  • Poor Laura! She drew the short straw on this one!! By popular request, we have made a video on cleaning a gelding's sheath! Probably not most people's favourite job but necessary for the health and well-being of your horse. Laura demonstrates the 'black (and smelly) art' on her Olympic horse, Alf, and gives some handy pointers! We also recommend you see the 'out-takes' version of this video in the Library, called 'The Delicate Matter of Willies' - it's sure to make you laugh!

  • Laura Bechtolsheimer continues the training with her 6 year old Dan, who is working towards Prix St Georges next season. Focusing on lateral work, Laura demonstrates the sequence of exercises she uses leading up to Half Pass. Dan is a darling but Laura, who is still only 23 (though she has already been to an Olympics), shows astonishing insight and empathy. She also has the gift of clarity! This is a gem of a video!
