Laura Bechtolsheimer, GB's top dressage rider (and number three in the world) trains her young horse Joey to do simple canter changes and we watch her very insightful warm-up; four star eventer Alex Petenell trains a forward going 6 year old to wait after jumping his fences; Italian eventer Vittoria Panizzon teaches young riders to improve their balance whilst jumping; Fiona Price interviews Laura B about her preparations for the World Equestrian Games and Fiona herself goes horse shopping which makes riveting viewing!
July's video highlights include in-hand and ridden work focusing on lateral movements with Portuguese classical dressage rider Francisco De Braganca, early ridden work with newly backed dressage stallion Fleetwood Mac plus loose jumping dressage stallions with Lynne Crowden at the Woodlander Stud, jumping training for event horses using a circle exercise with young rider gold medallist Georgie Spence and the making of Michael Eilberg's dressage freestyle to music for his Grand Prix horse Monty. As ever, Horse Hero videos provide great insight and lots of variety, so you'll be certain to find a wealth of ideas across the board to help you train your horse!
A wide ranging collection of videos from Horse Hero's filming in June including an eye opener into semen collection and insemination for breeding at the Woodlander Stud, work in hand with classical dressage trainer Francisco de Braganca and his Lusitano stallions in Portugal, advanced cross country riding with South African eventer Alex Peternell, a serpentine jumping exercise with Chinese eventer Alex Hua Tian, stretching exercises for horses and Feldenkrais body work for riders.

In typical Horse Hero style, May’s filming included a wide variety of subjects. We made dressage videos with team GB rider Maria Eilberg and her father and trainer Ferdi, and also Grand Prix rider Hannah Biggs. We filmed a dressage lesson for pony team member Claire Gallimore with leading British rider Laura Bechtolsheimer, as well as jumping training with 4* eventers Alex Peternell (cross country) and Alex Hua Tian (a school exercise, in preparation for his outing at Badminton '10). We also covered massage for competition horses and followed Fiona Price in her 40 km endurance challenge at the Golden Horseshoe ride on Exmoor. Enjoy!
