  • The global eventing fixture of the month was, without doubt, Burghley Horse Trials and Horse Hero was lucky enough to film some of the competitors in the Young Horse Finals, having filmed them in training a few months before. Ginnie Turnbull and Alex Postolowsky both had a busy day and it was fascinating following their progress with the 'babies'. Some coped with the big occasion better than others but we gained a fascinating insight into producing future stars! Separately, we filmed GB team rider Tom McEwen tactfully schooled one of his talented but quirky stars of the future cross country and dressage trainer Julie Legg gave a schoolmaster lesson.

  • Eventer Sarah Bullimore is an experienced 4* competitor. As a result of Nations Cup appearances and a successful trip to Kentucky Horse Trials in 2014, she was long-listed with two horses for WEG. Talking to Fiona Price about nerves before tackling Burghley's cross country, Sarah said "it's really the fear of messing up and if you are on a good dressage score, there's extra pressure". She added, "at top level, eventing is one big family and everyone is so supportive but it's vital not to get distracted. You have to focus on the positives and stay connected with your horse". Sarah admits to being just a bit superstitious about what she wears on the big day! She finished 19th & 31st.

  • Simon Grieve is a relative newcomer to 4* level. He talks to Fiona Price before tackling his third Burghley. "I was massively excited the first time I competed here and had to calm down but there were no expectations, which was great!" However, due to two serious falls, everything changed the second time when Simon had no preparation at all and found it difficult to stay positive. With the help of a sports psychologist, he used visualisation to focus on previous good experiences and completed successfully. "The key is to have strategies to deal with your nerves, so you don't dwell on them," says Simon, who produced a clear round to finish 30th this time. Watch this space!

  • Ginnie Turnbull is a seasoned 4* campaigner and regular Burghley Horse Trials competitor. Fiona Price asks her about preparing to ride what is generally considered to be the toughest course in the eventing world. "You rarely get the most perfect preparation", says Ginnie. "Riders call it the curse of the Bs" (Badminton and Burghley)". She says, "everything that can go wrong, usually does, which can make the course seem intimidating." But the flip side is that you "ride out of your skin at Burghley". Ginny adds "it's essential to ride within your horse's comfort zone to give him confidence and for you to focus on what you normally do, not try to be someone else on the day!"
