- The Road To The Top Out Now
new video, Pippa Funnell - the road to the top, produced by
Equestrian Vision, was launched at Badminton Horse Trials.
The film takes a look behind the scenes at one of Britain's
most popular event riders, reliving her greatest moments in
the sport of Eventing.
In her own modest way Pippa, and those close to her, tell
the story of her rise to the top, following her career from
the early days on ponies to European Champion and Badminton
Her mum, Jenny Nolan, takes us through her early years with
family pictures of her daughter on ponies. Ruth McMullen,
Pippa's mentor and provider of Sir Barnaby, describes nurturing
her talent, which culminated in them becoming National Champions.
The programme also provides a unique insight into Pippa's
daily routine as you watch her schooling, see her at home,
on the gallops and at competitions.
Interviews with Pippa, her loyal team of grooms and helpers,
sports psychologist, Nicky Heath, and, of course, husband
William, all combine to show the sport of Eventing to be both
unpretentious and enlightening.

RRP £15.99. For more information telephone 01730 892220,
