About this video

5 yr old Finn is aiming at BE 80 with eventer Sarah. The aim of the session with trainer Jon Rogers is to build his confidence cross country by incorporating the Scale of Training into the work. In the warm-up, Finn must learn to balance his canter on the sloping ground while Sarah must "sit up, look up and ride up" travelling uphill and "ride forwards" going downhill. As Finn is keen, Jon asks Sarah to think of the logs they start with as canter poles, to take the speed out of the equation. Canter-trot-canter transitions also help to get his attention. Moving on to technical questions such as ditches and a water complex, Jon puts the building blocks together carefully to ensure Finn remains confident.


DBGuk 19 Mar 2017 Really useful video - lovely partnership as well.
jon 18 Mar 2017 They finished on a 33 Dressage with a very confident XC, great result for the partnership.
Bobster 16 Mar 2017 Nice to watch a horse and rider that are training at the same level that I am. Having had a XC lesson rescently it has been great way of reinforcing schooling techniques that I practised in my lesson. Particularly like Jon, more please.
jon 15 Mar 2017 They're a great combination and have really progressed over the last few months. Sarah has entered Finn for a BE 80 at Stafford this coming Friday. Will keep you updated with how he gets on in his first BE event.
