This video is based on the initial ‘Masters Tour’ lecture demonstration that took place on 10 February 2002 at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre, Bucks, England.
Hosted by Britain’s Richard Davison, the evening starts with Anky van Grunsven and her partner/trainer Sjef Janssen, talking about what they look for when buying a young star.
Anky then rides a 5 year old mare. She and Sjef discuss how they start off the young horse, what exercises they perform and Anky demonstrates these.
In the last section of the first half, Anky gives a lesson to one of her pupils and then rides the horse herself.
The second half starts with a short interview when Anky recalls some of the great moments with Bonfire, his strengths and weaknesses and how he conquered his fears.
The final section sees Anky riding one of her stars of the future under Sjef’s watchful eye, and this fascinating ‘lesson’ has the capacity crowd enthralled.
Filmed with 4 cameras, this video is full of information and tips. It is also a wonderful insight into how an Olympic Champion prepares herself and her horse and what it takes to make it to the top.
