Behind the scenes as Jamie Snowden's youngsters go through their paces
Ever wondered how a young horse is taught to jump? Well, hopefully the RPTV cameras have the answers following a recent visit to Jamie Snowden's yard in Lambourn.
We spent a morning with Snowden, who won the novice handicap chase at the Cheltenham Festival in 2014 with Present View, finding out what is involved in the initial schooling of a horse who might become the next stable star.
Oscar Star, Queens Cloak, Flow From Devon and Cautorillo, who have all run in bumpers but never jumped an obstacle under rules, were put through their paces under Gavin Sheehan, champion female amateur rider Page Fuller and conditional Will Featherstone in the schooling ring in Upper Lambourn.
