  • Top British dressage rider Laura Bechtolsheimer has a final training session with Klaus Balkenhol, before the World Equestrian Games '10. Her father and co-trainer Dr B narrates. Fiona Price talks to Klaus and Dr B about Alf's physical and mental preparation for the Games, the long trip to Kentucky and what happens when he arrives. They also explain Alf's routine on the day of the test. As we watch Laura work, Dr B says keeping Alf happy is the main focus. He is so good in all moves that he is worked in short bursts only, with plenty of variety and frequent breaks. Alf's work in this session merits 10s in the transitions, passage and piaffe, according to Klaus!

  • World number three, Laura Bechtolsheimer talks to Fiona Price about the difference between riding at the Nationals and at an international competition. 15 year old thoroughbred Andy, Laura's second string, won the Grand Prix the day before by a large margin. Laura talks about the difference between her warmblood Alf (her WEG ride in a couple of weeks) and Andy. She also explains how she has won Andy over, as when she got him two years ago as a mature horse, he was not the easiest. We observe Laura's warm-up, watch her full Kur and Fiona gets a reaction afterwards. Despite Laura's concerns, she takes the title on an impressive 78.55%!

  • Andretti is currently number two in Britain and Laura's reserve for WEG. Just a few days before the Dressage National Champs' 2010, Laura has a session with world renowned German trainer Klaus Balkenhol. Dr B, Laura's father and regular coach, narrates. The 15 year old TB Andy has matured and made huge improvement in the contact in the two years he has been with Laura, enabling him to show off all of his considerable talent. Dr B says there is not much to do after half an hour as he is good in all moves. Their main job is to keep him happy through variety in his work. (A further video of Andy competing at the Nationals, will follow.)
