Rebecca Ashton here. As an equestrian journalist, I 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 I 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.

    Cathrine Laudrup- Dufour: Playing With Horses and Being A Nerd!

    Cathrine Laudrup- Dufour: Playing With Horses and Being A Nerd!

    I caught up with Cathrine during her sensational Aachen campaign just before the World Championships at Herning. She’s always so much fun to talk to. We discuss how she manages her horses and how she builds trust with them, their character and Cassidy’s “new job”. Why it’s important to always keep learning and evolving, remaining curious to new ideas, staying motivated, being able to chill at competitions and peaking in the sport. Evolving ideas and keeping curious. She talks a lot about her mental coach Rasmus Bagger and you can hear an amazing interview with him in an earlier podcast we did. He’s a total ball of energy!

    Christopher Bartle: Equestrian Coaching Legend

    Christopher Bartle: Equestrian Coaching Legend

    Christopher needs no introduction. He’s arguably the best equestrian coach in the world. After a twenty-year gold rush with Germany, Christopher Bartle is well on the way of repeating the same success with his home country eventing riders, Team GB. Having won Gold at the last World Equestrian Games, this year Chris and his squad also took out Team Gold at the Tokyo Olympics, and then few months later achieved the same result at the European Championships in Switzerland, as well as all individual Medals.

    In this interview we start with a wrap up of Tokyo and what’s next for Team GB. Chris discusses looking outside of the box, motivating athletes and some of the one percenters in the equestrian sport. We look how he takes the rider on the journey of success, how failure is used as a motivator and what makes a champion. Chris explains how he creates mental self carriage in horses and riders….and what does eventing and Formula 1 have in common?

    Rasmus Bagger mental coach to the stars: Don't Be Realistic, Be Relentless!

    Rasmus Bagger mental coach to the stars: Don't Be Realistic, Be Relentless!

    Picture this…..you’re one of the world’s top dressage rider. Tokyo is just around the corner. You are at a Nations Cup representing your team and your horse just says no. This is where Danish dressage star Cathrine Dufour found herself at Compiègne, just two months out from the Olympics when her horse Bohemian, who had been consistently scoring over 80%, decided the arena wasn’t for him and refused to enter for the Special, resulting in elimination for both her and her Danish team. That must shake the strongest of nerves. So what did Cathrine do? Went home, did some soul searching and called on her long time mental coach Rasmus Bagger who guided Cathrine back to the top of her game resulting in an individual fourth place finish at the Tokyo Games and then just a few weeks later, a team bronze an individual bronze and silver at the European Championships. Wow!

    I had to talk to Rasmus! He’s such an enthusiastic and generous person. His passion is totally infectious. In this chat Rasmus talks about building confidence, knowing how much of the game is mental and taking from other sports. Dancing with horses and the beauty of changing your mental interpretation of a situation. Seeking out gurus, his “Five-Three-One” Rule and why your mental state is more important than 10,000 hours. Balancing heart and head and Rasmus digs deep into focus, emotions and body language and how important it is with horses and in the ring: choosing it, showing it, feeling it, giving it. How your horse interprets you and our responsibility to our horse as well as making horses greater. And in regards goals, what’s realistic anyway?

    Andrew Hoy: Eight Time Olympian. Passion!

    Andrew Hoy: Eight Time Olympian. Passion!

    Eight time Olympian Andrew Hoy and I had a fabulous catch up over Zoom (how good’s technology?!) just before he heads off to Tokyo. Here’s your chance to get to know one of those rarified individuals who is just uber successful; one of the elite. We learn about the influence of Andrew’s parents when he was young, the importance of having great people around you. Making mistakes. The important parts of the learning process. The undeniable importance of passion. Learning from losing and learning to focus. Making things work and being solution based. We find out how Andrew is living his last week before training camp. We debrief Luhmuhlen and talk about the phenomenon that is Vassily de Lassos and his brilliant owners and what Andrew looks for in a horse. And his take away? Controlling what you can control and not worrying about the rest.

    Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl: DressurFit for Rider Fitness

    Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl: DressurFit for Rider Fitness

    Do you want to ride like Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl? So do I. Well….I can’t promise her fitness programme will achieved that…she does a lot of hard work on the horse as well. However, it will help you be the best rider you can. You don’t want to be the weak link in your training!

    In this podcast, I talk to Jessica about the fitness programme used by her and her brother Benjamin and that’s now available for you to do as well! Jessica and Benjamin are both top level dressage riders in Germany. As a senior, Jessica has been on the podium at the World Cup Finals, Aachen CHIO, the Europeans and World Equestrian Games both as a German team member and individually. She also won the German Championships last year on her mare Dalera.

    Jessica talks about the DressurFit system, why extra fitness training is needed for all riders, the importance of good breathing and what got her into extra fitness training in the first place. She also talks about the need for riders to keep up with the more athletic horses being bred. We also discuss handling pressure and the importance of always learning and updating your knowledge.

    Andreas Hausberger: Chief Rider, The Spanish Riding School, Vienna

    Andreas Hausberger: Chief Rider, The Spanish Riding School, Vienna

    This is one of the most fabulous interviews I’ve had the privilege of being part of. Andreas Hausberger. He’s a chief rider at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. He is beautiful, friendly, learned, generous and has a great sense of humour. His passion is infectious. Andreas is a genius with work in hand and is in high demand from some of the top riders of today to help with the high school movements of piaffe, passage and pirouettes.

    In this all encompassing interview, Andreas talks about the history and tradition of the School and what it has to offer the modern sport.
    He starts with his journey up the levels of the Spanish Riding School and we get deeper into the flexibility of the School, the masters who went before and their influence….there’s a lot of fascinating history in this.

    For years Andreas has worked with German dressage royalty: the Werndls and Rothenbergers and he gives us some insight into this work and talks a little bit about Cosmo and Dalera. It’s reassuring to know the top riders have their ups and downs as well! Andreas emphasises the importance of patience, consistency and having good eyes on the ground; the importance of the rider’s seat; taking the fear out of training, not forcing the horse and seeing the horse as a partner as well as focusing on doing the exercises correctly. We go on to discuss Classical versus Rollkur as training methods as well.


    All I can say is…listen to this podcast! Due to travel restrictions, it was conducted over WhatsApp rather than face to face so the quality isn’t as great as I’d hoped for. You might have to sit down and pay close attention, but that’s hardly a bad thing.
