Narnia Horse Training Developments

Posted May 14, 2004 7:26 am by Tirian

The training of all the current horses has commenced. There are approximately a dozen on site and there seem to be 3 main horses so far – 1 black, 1 chestnut, 1 grey. The grey seems to be undergoing specialist trick training -such as rearing. The other horses are currently being trained for liberty work – i.e. like circus horses running in formation left or right while the main horses are ridden .

There is also an interesting ‘device’ on the property – two large poles (telegraph sized but not as tall) with two metal rings attached to both. Guesses are that these will be used for training a horse in levade (in hand training between poles is classical for dressage) OR some sort of acrobatic training for people….

BTW The horses are using an enormous truck for transport – so once filming begins in June this would be easy for any hardcore spies to follow the truck(s) out to filming sites from the base.
