Filming. We recently filmed young horse specialist, Will Turnbull, starting several horses from scratch, as a follow-up to a series of videos we made with wife Ginny last year preparing 4 and 5 yr olds for the Burghley Young Event Horse final. Will, who starts future competition horses in all disciplines for many top riders and breeders, showed us his process from the beginning which offers a great insight into how to give a horse the best possible start in life!
Previously, we retuned to classical dressage trainer David Pincus. We are taking a break from filming now and will start again in the New Year. But there's plenty to edit to keep the videos coming!
