Well, this week will be a challenge. Dujumping are hosting Marcus Wenz on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We have an hour a day of individual tuition and training with him.
Marcus is a pretty big deal in the showjumping world and has worked with top teams including being the national trainer for Luxembourg and Belarus. I felt a little nervous as I have been riding for such a short time I thought I might just not be good enough for him to even start helping me. When I met him I realised how nice he was and he soon put me at ease as we started to put together some jumps to train over.
We soon got started and he was very structured, ensuring I had better control, stopping and riding more accurately. It was really great fun and I can’t wait to do some more today.
Here is a small clip of the end of the training session.
