Filming. We recently filmed horse behaviourist Will Hunt starting a three year old, working with a horse that bucked and one who couldn't stand still. Horse Hero Founder Fiona Price is also filming more with her own horse Taz, who is on the World Class Squad for endurance. Having progressed beyond recognition over the last few years, there are still a minor niggles which are preventing him from moving up to the top level. So Fiona has taken him for a leading edge therapy at Samsara Equitation and will be tracking his progress.
Over the next few weeks, we are also returning to film with Pammy Hutton, Dan Greenwood, Natalie Allen and Alberto Guigni.
