Our sponsored rider Emile Faurie has taken part in the series with some filming at his yard. This is a great series for anyone who dreams of riding a test and enjoying every minute. We all know that hours of practice and training are needed. These short videos are a quick confidence boost!
We spoke to Kelly, Emile's head girl to find out about the preparation.
“The day filming was great, Emile is a complete pro at getting the right horse for each movement and the best tips across. It's always difficult to film exact things but we managed to get it all correct and the horses behaved! It took a lot of grooming, washing and yard sweeping the day beforehand to get everything looking perfect. Emile has a system of training for every movement so it's brilliant to get those steps explained for us to follow and try out with our horses. "
Here’s a taster…..
