How I can help you.
I am continually developing my skills as a coach, and this means the services I offer my clients are also developing. Keep an eye on this page to see what is new.
As a Dressage judge and a coach I enjoy seeing my clients grow in confidence and understanding to help them develop with their horses
One to one coaching
I am available for both flat and jump training at your yard, or for mindset development, goal setting and performance profiling out of the saddle.
Free "Ride The Right Circle" course
This is a very short course that explains the importance of circles in the training of our horses.

Where Do The Marks Go?
Do you get similar comments on your test sheets?
Do you wonder how to get an 8, maybe a 9, or that rare thing, a 10?
Do you ever wonder what it is the judge is looking for?
Recently it has become clear to me that many competitors are losing marks for similar errors when they present a test. Some of these errors require consistent training to correct, but some are misunderstandings on the part of the rider that are easily corrected, but need to be pointed out.
What's Your Focus
This is a package of 5 one to one coaching sessions:-
First an unmounted session via Zoom or Facetime, until we are free to meet face to face for a coffee. During this session we will look at your current performance level, what your goals are and what may be holding you back.
Then 3 mounted sessions where I will encourage you to work on exercises that will improve your horses way of going and develop balance and strength. I will also encourage you to use a training journal, to record your coaching sessions and any schooling sessions you do in between.
Finally another unmounted meeting to look back at how we have done, and look forward to the next steps
Clinics at Lacock Equestrian Centre
Clinics at Lacock will be back as soon as lockdown restrictions allow. Groups are a maximum of 4 riders, and we work on flat and over poles to develop the horses way of going and improve connection between horse and rider.
Geometry and the long arena
A course on how the circles and other movements "fit" in the 60 metre arena. many people are wary of attempting a long arena test. This course will help dispell many of the fears.
