Ever wondered what inspires elite riders?
Turns out, many of the same things that motivate all horse lovers. Carly sat down for a few minutes to share a few of her current sources of inspiration:
- Tim Flach is one of my favourite animal photographers...I have his 'Equus' book and the images are stunning. (See his work at www.timflach.com)
- Edward Gal is an amazing rider...he has the most beautiful seat and such a talent for training. (See one of Gal's rides at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJViRPsf8sw)
- This is a great clip from Olympic Champion Laura Tomlinson on the Pursuit of Perfection -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EFVMBUDYG8
- Of course, Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro's World Record 93% test. What an inspiration and British too; what more can one ask for?! (Click here to watch the ride.) Learn more about how Charlotte trains and prepares at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdG1fH59azs
We will sit down with Carly again soon for more inspiring dressage resources. Until then, happy riding!
