Welcome to my website.
My goal is to help all riders to get the most out of their relationship with their horses, whether that is simply to enjoy a safe hack, or whether it is to improve their competition scores.
If you are thinking about having a go at dressage - or have already started but wish to progress - then I would be delighted to help you. You do not need to already be riding at a certain level, nor does your horse need to be capable of anything except carrying you on its back!
I am happy to teach a whole range of riders, from the absolute beginner to the experienced competition rider, and I can help you to progress, whatever your level.
I am a British Dressage registered trainer, a British Horse Society qualified and registered freelance instructor, a UKCC level 2 coach, a Grand Prix level rider and a List 5 Judge.
I am insured, DBS (CRB) checked, and have undertaken child protection training. As a registered BHS instructor, I attend bi-yearly First Aid updates and regular professional development days.
I have trained my own horse from a just backed 3 year old to Grand Prix. I have helped many riders over the years at all levels, from complete beginners through nervous riders right up to Medium level affiliated competitors.
They key to a successful partnership is Communication. This is all about the aids and how they are applied, to enable your horse to understand what you want from it.
A horse that understands its boundaries and its rider's requirements is a happy horse, and a happy horse is a much nicer horse to ride - whether you choose to do dressage, jumping or hacking.
All lessons are on your horse at your yard and are positive, encouraging and constructive. I will help you work on your position and your aids, in order to improve communication between you and your horse.
