Two-and-a-half Minutes with Carl Hester

The Team GB rider discusses the challenges and rewards of training so-called “difficult” horses, his unorthodox approach to horse-keeping (his horses live out in a field!) and his WEG ride Nip Tuck.

This beautifully produced film, exclusive to Land Rover, was filmed at Nip Tuck’s first CDI3*on British soil, at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May 2014. The 18-hand 10-year-old Carl co-owns with Jane de la Mare has since gone on to win CDI3* at Hartpury and at the WEG test event.

We look forward to watching Carl and Nip Tuck compete at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in just a few short weeks. He and teammates Charlotte Dujardin riding Valegro, Gareth Hughes riding DV Stenkjers Nadonna, and Michael Eilberg riding Half Moon Delphi come in on the heels of a Team Gold Medal at the 2012 London Olympics, so we expect that they’ll be giving the world a run for its money in Normandy in defense of their title. Learn more about Team GBR here, and check out the WEG dressage schedule of events here.
