I teach both private and group lessons and run a variety of clinics here at Rydal Mount Stables but I can also arrange regular lessons and clinics at other venues to suit.
How can I help?
Whether you are a recreational happy hacker or committed competition rider, my enjoyable and inclusive methods can help you realise your ambitions and unlock your potential.
Instruction in dressage, show jumping and cross country. Having worked with some of the most accomplished riders in the UK and Germany, I have gained knowledge and experience from the best, and I am passionate about passing this onto my clients.
Test riding As a British Dressage recognised trainer and judge I am able to help you ride your tests with more confidence and systematically improve your dressage marks.
BHS Exam Training Being a qualified BHSII means that I have worked my way through the BHS exam system. I can offer expert guidance and training from theory through to practical, covering everything you need to know for the exam. I am also a recognised trainer and assessor for the BHS Challenge awards.
Nutritional Advice Through years of experience with NAF as a nutritional advisor and more recently as a college lecturer in Equine Nutrition, I can advise on what can be such a daunting and confusing subject.
