*************************************************************************************************************************

Our own Horse Hero DVDs show-case the outstanding material we have filmed with Laura Bechtolsheimer and there are also DVDs made with her trainer, the world renowned Klaus Balkenhol, along with his extraordinary book. (Click on the tabs at the top of the page to get to the different sections of the shop.)
 
Laura says, "Making videos with Horse Hero has been fun and educational for me as well as my horses. By showing the work we do with our lovely horses we aim to share our learning and experience with those who want to progress their horses in a sensitive and understanding way. Being open about our methods and the training philosophy (which I share with my father), is a key part of the videos. I hope our openness is appreciated and that by including the less than perfect moments, we can show in a more realistic way how to work through problems with horses and achieve greater harmony."

Plus we stock Horse Hero clothing, designer jackets and stock pins. You can also buy a Horse Hero subscription gift voucher in the shop, which makes an ideal present for any horse-lover!

The baby and the finished horse
HHDVD0002
In Stock

Laura was the youngest rider to win the National Championships and to represent Great Britain in dressage. She made her Olympic debut in 2008, and in 2009 won team silver and individual bronze at the European Championships setting a new GB record. In 2010, she won three silver medals at the World Equestrian Games, including team silver.

In this DVD, Laura takes us from one end of the training spectrum to the other. Working with her four-year-old, Stepdance (Step), she demonstrates the focus of training in the very early days. Laura then showcases her Grand Prix horse and Olympic partner, Mistral Hojris (Alf), who is at the top of his game.

User feedback: Absolutely brill!! I'm very pleased with my purchase of Laura Bechtolsheimer's set of 4 DVDs. I thoroughly enjoyed the videos on Horse Hero site, and did wonder if it would be worth buying them to view on the TV. A resounding YES! Even better on the big screen, such a lovely informative family, long may they reign. The simplicity of your ordering system and the great correspondence together with the rapid delivery speed makes shopping with you a pleasure. Long may your site reign too." Jeanette Beevor-Reid

Horse Hero Cavesson
HH0001
In Stock
This is a beautiful piece of hand made, hand stitched leatherwork using the best quality leather, padded with calf skin and latex and offering plenty of adjustment to ensure maximum comfort for the horse during lungeing. This style of cavesson is the preferred choice of Dr Wilfried Bechtolsheimer and used by Laura in the Horse Hero lungeing video, Laura has made some refinements to the Horse Hero version (only available on this site), so that it is ultra light and easy to use. It is especially suited for use in conjunction with the Horse Hero Lungeing Rope shown in the same video. 
 
Laura Bechtolsheimer says, “I wanted to ensure the cavesson was well padded so it can be made tight enough to prevent any pulling and shearing forces to the horse’s nose when using the rings on either side.”
 
Dr Bechtolsheimer says, “Care should be taken when introducing the young horse to the first steps of his education to avoid unnecessary stress. By not having to put something strange into his mouth and pulling on it when teaching him to move on a circle, he will be more co-operative and less resistant.. Combining a well fitting cavesson and a patient approach, he will learn the lungeing lesson quickly. The cavesson is also useful for work in hand and long reining later in the horse’s education.”

Horse Hero Founder, Fiona Price says, "I tried the cavesson and just love it. It feels nice and is beatifully crafted. It's feather weight, softly padded and fits very snuggly. It doesn't move at all when lungeing and as there is no central ring which can often cause unecessary movement on the horse's nose, my horse had a smile on his face too!"
 
The Horse Hero Cavesson is available in Full Size and Extra Full, and in Black or Dark Brown. It is made especially for Horse Hero by Albion. All rings and buckles are brass coloured rather than the silver colour shown in the photos and video.

"I used my cavesson for the first time today (I also have the bit strap). My horse was so comfortable in it; it didn't move at all. It's light and beautifully padded. There's nothing like it on the market. Thanks so much!"

Laura was the youngest rider to win the National Championships and to represent Great Britain in dressage. She made her Olympic debut in 2008, and in 2009 won team silver and individual bronze at the European Championships (setting a new GB record).

In this DVD, Laura and her trainer (and father) Dr B develop their talented youngsters in a sympathetic and purposeful way. Progressing from 'baby' work in previous DVDs, Step and Teddy have now matured as 5 year olds. This two-part DVD offers priceless insight into the thinking and training of one of the world's top dressage riders.
