About me

A serious fall interrupted Claire’s progression riding and continuing along the BHS exam route. She was recommended to try Pilates and this sent her along a new path. Her hunger to learn more to improve riders and ultimately improve the welfare of horses lead her to study new methods.

Claire is also a Testt® certified coach, list 4 BD dressage judge, Advanced Equipilates™ Biomechanics Coach and Franklin Method® Equestrian Level 1 Eductator. Via her online platform, Claire motivates, inspires & educates riders teaching courses and weekly Pilates sessions aimed directly "for the rider".

Claire teaches ridden sessions to all levels from Pony Club and grass routes to those competing at higher levels, with the focus on "feel" so the rider "becomes the rider their horse would choose".
