  1. Thanks for sharing, that was really interesting! I didn’t know you were a fan of Luca Moneta – I love his approach, so unusual for a show jumper, and very far “out there” for that part of the industry… I say that to clarify that I’m fully aware that far from all show jumpers are out on the other end of the spectrum (the traditional over-gadgety and bullying part), that there are also people in between who seem to really value their horses and treat them well, but Moneta in particular really pushes that boundary and can be seen to let his horses decide, rather than treating them like machines.

    1. Hey Becky, glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I do really enjoy watching him ride and train, great approach and results to go with it and I hope his ethos spreads wider and wider!

      1. I remember first seeing him on TV during the 2013 Puissance at Olympia and suddenly sitting up straight on the sofa when I realised there was a guy competing in a standard cavesson and a snaffle – I think I fell in love there and then!

      2. Haha I missed him at Olympia. I first watched an Italian video of him explaining his methods (which of course I understood very little of but liked what I saw) so I followed his videos ever since 🙂 I am not a fan of Parelli and in fact, don’t see how some of the teachings agree with behaviour science but when it’s used well, it’s great to learn from.
