Filming. We recently returned to film with Kate Cowell. She and the ‘boys and girls’ coped well in 30 degrees heat! We made a follow-up video of ‘delicious Delilah' (first video recently published) who had been upgraded to a double bridle and looked a picture! Kate also rode a green youngster and taught amateur Lesley who competes at Medium with ‘dangerous Dave’ - brave girl! All great stuff and videos coming soon. Previously, we filmed Team GB Paralympic silver medallist rider Ricky Balshaw working with trainer Anna Brown. Next up, filming with up and coming eventer Franky Reid-Warrilow.
