On 13th/14th Feb we spent 2 days at Solihull for our pre season BEF Excel Talent Squad Training. I took Monster (Brendonhill Doublet) and the new boy, Casper (Kalico).
As always with Excel we had an extremely informative and educational 2 days really gearing us up for the season ahead. I had some great ridden coaching from Nick Burton, Corrine Bracken and Caroline Moore, the horses are feeling amazing and I can't wait for the season to get going (only 2 weeks to go!!!)
I am hugely grateful to the BEF and everyone at Excel for their invaluable input into my horses and myself over the past 4 years I have been on the programme. We have covered all areas of training with in-depth detail into physio, psychology, nutrition, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, vet and farrier support to name a few!
We are starting the season at Aston le Walls this year where I will have my first run on my own and Janet Walsh's, Kalico, as well as The Wild's, Storm Cruiser, Sonia Smith's, Quitus De Louan will also be having his first run of the year, cant wait to get going!
