Filming. We recently filmed classical dressage trainer David Pincus (a former student at the Spanish Riding School and pupil of Dr Reiner Klimke) working with daughter Lucy, who has been making a name for herself on homebred horses and ponies from the Sheepcote Stud. David also taught stable jockey Eli Lovell. Previously, we filmed Dan Greenwood with two of his up and coming yard riders. Next, we visit dressage trainer Tim Downes, BHS Fellow, list 1 dressage judge and international 4* eventing judge.
