Preparing your horse for competing

One of the highlights of the British Dressage calendar is the National Championships - held at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, it’s a fabulous opportunity to see the country’s finest talent compete over 5 days. I’m a huge fan of the Nationals as its such a gorgeous venue with plenty of seating around the arenas, some fabulous shopping and of course - the food stands! It’s such an aspirational show for so many of us, whether we ride young horses just coming out to do 4 and 5 year old classes or we are out competing at the very highest levels....

Schooling Sunday - Riding Squares

Sponsored rider Angela Gladding shares her thoughts on the use of squares in training. Angela is currently riding her homebred 'Jupiter' at Inter 1 having trained him through the levels. She tell us that 'riding squares is so underrated and benefits all levels of both horse and rider'. Being able to keep control of the shoulder (especially the outside one) is so important regardless of the level you're working at.

Schooling Sunday - Riding a hotter horse in the walk & trot

Schooling Sunday - Riding a hotter horse in the walk & trot

Sponsored rider Fran Turner shares her thoughts with us this week on riding hot horses. Fran is currently producing her 13hh Welsh pony stallion 'Raf' for British Dressage young pony classes following her success with her retrained ex racehorse who she trained from the track to PSG. She describes Raf as very 'goey' - never spooky, never silly but always thinking about moving forward and sometimes that means his hind leg is 10 steps ahead of his brain! So how do you school a hot horse, how do you avoid all that power ending up in your hands? The first thing...
