DVD Laura Bechtolsheimer and Dr B Train their Future Stars

Availability: Available now

  • Dr. B demonstrates long reining. 

  • Training the 4 year old dressage horse.

  • Two very different 5 year old dressage horses.



The Bechtolsheimers, Laura and her father Dr. B, work their stunning young dressage horses both on the ground and under saddle, their approach is patient and considerate. Dr B provides a masterly demonstration of long-reining and he interprets Laura's lesson with renowned German trainer Klaus Balkenhol.

Chapters include:
  • Introduction
  • Dr Bechtolsheimer long-reins Step: Dr B demonstrates long reining on the 5 year old Stepdance (Step). He explains how this teaches youngsters to understand the contact, half halts and transitions without the hindrance of a rider.
  • Starting the 4 year old Joey: Laura shows her stunning 4 year old, Joey, to trainer Klaus Balkenhol and Dr B translates the lesson which is given in German. Klaus asks Laura to find a regular rhythm and contact and to make corrections quietly. Joey works from a long rein to a loose rein. Short intervals of collected work then follow and the start of half halts. The session is perfectly timed to suit Joey's concentration span!
  • Stars for the future: Teddy and Stepdance (Step) are 5 year olds but are at different stages in their training due to their size and conformation. Laura rides Step and Carl Cuypers rides the enormous Teddy. Their work seems similar but differs in intensity. Step is able to collect and balance, take sitting trot and a deeper seat while Carl has to ride Teddy tactfully with shallow corners so he can maintain his balance.
The youngest rider to win the National Championships and to represent Great Britain in dressage, Laura Bechtolsheimer made her Olympic debut in 2008. In 2009 she won team and individual medals at the European Championships.

Running time approx 64 mins
