Filming. We recently filmed up and coming eventer Sam Ecroyd who, without doubt, is a star in the making! Sam is aiming for the Junior European Championships this summer. He jumped three horses for us including his two top boys and a youngster, using a variety of clever jumping exercises and giving an excellent commentary.
Previously, we filmed fellow eventer Franky Reid-Warrilow, who is making her mark at 3* level and has been selected to represent GB at the European 2* Championships.
Site development. Horse Hero is now fully 'mobile friendly' for smart phones and tablets, so you can make the most of our amazing training videos when you are with your horse, before you get on to ride!
Next video: Kate Cowell trains amateur dressage rider Lesley and the home produced and quirky 'Dangerous Dave' who compete together at Medium level. Thankfully, on this occasion, Lesley doesn't need her parachute!
