About me

I have been involved in the equestrian industry for many years as a dressage, and show jumping coach.  I teach adults, working on-line as well as face to face with clients. Currently, I teach on a freelance basis, and run on-line webinars.

Being a psychotherapist (BA (Hons), my aim is to help riders to unleash their potential by understanding the psychology of their relationship with their horse. I specialise in coaching riders to improve confidence and to help them to overcome fear, often the resulting from the trauma of riding accidents, building upon my own personal experience.

I teach adults all over the UK, and am willing to travel for clinics.

My Riding History:
From a riding school background, I gained BHS qualifications, and later trained in Germany as a Bereiter, becoming an accomplished show jumper, and dressage rider. This involved training and competing horses at all levels up to Grand Prix, which I continued to do once back in the UK. I have experience of dressage to music, particularly Quadrille riding, having reached the final at Olympia in 2000.

As an author, I have written Equestrian books, plus produced the series of Claire Lilley Training Programme DVDs, details of which are on
