Filming. We recently filmed with British-based US eventer Tiana Coudray (who began her career as a dancer!). Tiana braved horizontal sleet on an extremely 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. Thankfully, it was sunny by the end!
Previously, we filmed GB team eventer Lucy Wiegersma, who rode three horses for us, a five year old just starting his jumping training, a six year old mastering straightness and Lucy's next Championship prospect, the impressive Mr Chunky. Matters were spiced up by the hunt passing through the yard on several occasions! Next up is show jumping with international rider Angie Thompson.
