  • British team dressage rider, Anna Ross Davies is a first class trainer. She's also funny and has a great insight into her horse's pysche. Merrie is a 7 year old mare who's on the World Class Programme, as a potential star for the future. "You have to look to your own riding if there are issues with your horse", says Anna, a philosophy she gained from training with Ulla Salzgeber. She starts by testing Merrie's gears with transitions and also works on flexion. Anna demonstrates how body awareness influences her horse and minimises the need for aids. She says a logical system is essential to create the foundation for more advanced work.

  • Bought as a 4 year old, this stunning mare has been successful in young horse classes. Now she's 8 and on the Equine Pathway aiming for London 2012. Olympic rider, Jane Gregory, takes us through her warmup in preparation for working on advanced moves (in another video). "Soul Sister's a good mover, active and has a fantastic brain", says Jane but right from the start the focus is on the basics drummed into Jane when training with Ulla Salzgeber - straightness, half halts, flexion and bend plus riding a good corner. Jane plays with the energy and checks the mare's responses. She shows us various exercises and also tells Soul Sister's story!
