Episode 2 of ‘The Other Side Of The Fence’ with Olly Murphy is out now.
The Matchbook cameras follow a horse bought at the sales by Olly to Charlie Poste’s Station Yard.

‘Breaking In’ a horse with Charlie Poste
In Episode 2, Charlie brilliantly talks us through the ‘breaking in’ process with a young horse.
The horse has to get used to something as simple as having a saddle on his/her back, meaning there is a delicate formula that Charlie must follow.
From there, we watch as the horse has a human on its back for the first time, all the way to watching the horse begin riding out in a circle.
The length of this process all depends on the horse’s ability to learn, but it tends to last a few weeks.
After this is completed, the horse will be sent back to Olly’s yard to begin training.
You can watch the full video below.
