Here are Helen and Alfie looking pretty smart at a training session with Adam Kemp yesterday.
Refining movements and teaching Alfie new movements, especially when he's at peak fitness, can be challenging; he is often highly strung and resistant to the discipline!
These early, post winter break sessions, are incredibly beneficial. Adam has a very similar approach to Maggie Doel and his input, providing a fresh pair of eyes, was invaluable as Alfie returns to work. It really is a team effort to produce and train horses and different venues also provide additional stimulus, helping to prepare horses for their future events.
