About me

I have taught rider biomechanics alongside dressage training for over 30 years. I predominately teach adults, either at my own Shropshire base, or at clinics throughout the UK, and can offer lessons at my riding centre for those who don't have their own horse, with schoolmasters up to Elementary level. The Riding Centre has a lovely indoor school with mirrors, and an outdoor, both 20 x 40. We hold camps, clinics, and mini courses in addition to regular lessons.

I have competed to BD Advanced, and trained to Inter II, mostly on horses who were neither flashy or expensive! 

I love to unlock the key to a rider's seat, giving them the tools to harmoniously influence their horse. I train combinations from Intro to advanced medium, and act as a biomechanics consultant to riders above this level who need my eye purely for their own riding development. I am also happy to train riders who have no wish to compete and just want to better themselves. 

I love all horses unconditionally, and am just as happy teaching novice riders on ponies as I am teaching professionals on warmbloods.

If I coach you, then I believe in you, and will be 100% committed to helping you become the rider you want to be.
