There's a wide variety of subjects in this month's video collection, including dealing with a spooky horse and how to gain full control of your horse's body under saddle, both with reining rider Shane Borland. Plus training for the show ring with Sam Quiney, dressage with top British rider Laura Bechtolsheimer and fellow GB team member Emile Faurie (gold medal team members, European Champs' 2011) and agility training in hand with Vanessa Bee, who teaches Secret to walk over bridges. Fascinating stuff and something for everyone!
September video highlights include dressage, horse behaviour and reining. After winning an historic dressage team gold at the European Champs 2011, Emile Faurie gives a fascinating interview to Horse Hero's Fiona Price and makes some training videos. Dr Bechtolsheimer teaches head girl Lara on the home-bred mare Pammina and GB junior dressage team member, Sam Thurman-Baker, works her grand prix horse Pascal. She also shows us the unusual method she uses to calm his competition nerves! Vanessa Bee works a horse at liberty and reining rider Shane Borland demonstrates the art of speed control. Plenty to inspire and inform you!
What a variety of videos in August! We filmed a very exciting Endurance National Championships, the new sport of horse agility and classical in-hand dressage with up and coming star Samatha Thurman-Baker. We also talked to Laura Bechtolsheimer before she headed off to the European Champs' and her father and trainer Dr B gave a lesson to their yard rider Lara for us. We filmed with top reining rider Shane Borland on his methods of training for relaxation and finished our series of retraining ex-racehorses with Lisa Venables. It could hardly be more varied. Lots to inspire!
Retraining ex-racehorses is a popular topic and we have two highlights in this selection, which cover the basics. These videos are designed to get you off to the right start with your new mount! Horse behaviourist Sarah Fisher works with recently backed Taz and Horse Hero's Fiona Price and American posture expert Peggy Cummings trains eventer Louisa Lockwood. Junior European team gold medallist Jessica Mendoza does show jumping training and we follow GB team member Tricia Hirst through the 100 mile race at the Endurance National Championships!
