H&C's camera girl Katie Gormley gets to go on some great filming assignments. She creates all our Top Marks series, and during filming of an upcoming episode she received a bit of a helping hand from a certain Monty Roberts...
Katie says: "I was filming Kelly Marks recently during her first ever jumping lesson on 18hh Harry. Pat Burgess (the jumping coach legend) was giving the pair a lesson as Kelly wants to get Harry jumping in case they come across any obstacles when out Bloodhounding. They started out with a grid and Harry was picking it up really fast.
Monty Roberts was also there, giving Kelly some encouragement and wisdom from the sidelines. I had filmed a few different angles when Monty came up to me and said 'I can see it being a really nice angle from down here, from under the jump,' so I tried it, and I think I got the best shot of the day. Monty carried on giving me more tips throughout the day, which was great. He's had so much TV experience, and it was lovely to have his ideas."
Top Marks: Harry Goes Hunting will air in December on Horse & Country
