About Us

As equestrian journalists, we get to interview people who are top of their game and have so many ideas and information to pass on. This often transcribes into quite long interviews, sometimes a few thousand words.While the interviews we do will still be transcribed and offered to you in written format (with great photos of course!), this is for those of you who want something interesting to listen to while you’re getting the dinner ready or driving in your car or mucking out the stables so you don’t miss out.

Spencer Wilton: It Has To Look Easy

Although starting in the world of eventing, Spencer turned to dressage in his 20s. He’s won 13 national titles and with is partner in the arena Super Nova, helped bring home team silver at the Rio Olympics in 2016 and team bronze at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon in 2018. As a trainer and rider, Spencer comes up with the best exercises….and lots of them! In this interview he breaks down his process for us. We talk about what the hardest thing is to achieve in dressage, the importance of transitions AND discipline as well as trying to balance your training and test riding at home and we also touch on how dressage is evolving. Spencer also delves into mental preparation and his crazy lead up to WEG at Tryon which was really interesting because sometimes you just don’t realise what’s been going on behind the scenes when you see the perfect combinations step out at the big shows. And speaking of shows, what does Super Nova think about prize givings?! …and is why Charlotte, “so annoying.” ;-) Spencer was brought out to Australia by Dressage Masterclass and I was lucky enough to watch him teach at the IRT Future Stars Clinic in Sydney.

Spencer Wilton: It Has To Look Easy

Bettina Hoy on Fitness

Today’s interview is with German eventing legend Bettina Hoy! Bettina has competed at three Olympics and four WEGS and is still very active as a 3 and 4 star rider today. In 2017 she became the national coach of the Dutch eventing team. Like myself, Bettina is passionate about rider fitness and it’s that subject we delve into in this interview; what sort of fitness is best and some different exercises that you can put into use right now. We digress a couple of times to talk about Bettina’s future in straight dressage and also how you take on the king of eventing coaching Christopher Bartle as a rival coach..though I can assure you it is a very friendly rivalry. Last year Bettina filmed some exercise videos for "WeHorse" and they are online waiting for you to enjoy right now (see link below). So, put your trainers on and listen up! https://www.wehorse.com/de/search?keywords=Bettina+Hoy

Therese Nilshagen: dressage with harmony

Swedish rider Therese Nilshagen is one of those lovely riders who just makes dressage look easy. At the time of making this podcast, Therese is ranked 12th in the world and is one of the key riders on the Swedish team with the stallionIn Dante Weltino. She stands out with her soft, harmonious riding whether she’s riding Grand Prix or in the young horse classes at the Bundeschampionate where she won the five year old final on Dominy in 2017. In a very animated Aachen atmosphere last year, Therese talks about her journey from being a kid in a stable to being one of the best riders in the world; how she got to train with Klaus Balkenhol and what makes him so great. She talks about her training routine and making the horses feel confident and good in themselves along with fitness and sports psychology work before running is through what a competition day looks like.
