Earlier this year, in partnership with feed manufacturer Dodson and Horrell two Your Horse magazine readers won our Goal Getter competition.
One of winners, Charlotte Witcombe travelled from Southampton to Wiltshire with her horse Princess for their lesson with event rider Harry Meade.
Charlotte has her eyes firmly fixed on qualifying for the 2019 Mitsubishi Motors Cup at Badminton with her horse Princess.
The focus of their lesson was to help the ex-racehorse make a better shape over her fences.
Harry uses several different exercises during the lesson to help both horse and rider to concentrate and ride accurately.
By the end of the lesson there was a clear improvement and Harry's exercises could help your horse too.
