Filming. We recently filmed with international show jumper Angie Thompson who rode a tall and talented six year old for us, a small and equally talented four year old and a newly backed five year old (just starting her career after having a baby). Angie explained the warm-up for each horse, exercises to improve them and jumped them all round a course. Very educational and insightful! Previously, we filmed with British-based US eventer Tiana Coudray (who began her career as a dancer). Tiana braved horizontal sleet on an green ex-racer who took some convincing the camera and umbrella weren't going to eat her! She also jumped a newly backed three year old and taught novice eventer Emma Shakell.
