Alison Kenward Dressage
I am a Dressage Rider and I enjoy Coaching Competition and Leisure Riders. I have played A Grade Polocrosse before my love of training horses lead me to the Dressage Arena where I have competed up to Advanced Medium level. I have competed at National level with Jack and Sebastian with highlights competing in Dressage to Music and riding for England at the Amateur Home International. My current horse Neptune and I have begun to compete at Medium level.
I am a British Horse Society Accredited Professional Coach. I hold the Stable Manager’s Certificate, Senior Coach, UKCC3 Generic and List 6 Judge. I am a Centre10 Advanced Coach, British Dressage Recognised Coach and a National Development Programme for Coaching Excellence Graduate. I hold an HND in Equine studies with Estate Management and am a NZEF Community Coach.
I enjoy connecting with Riders all over the world and as technology advances this becomes even easier. It’s now possible to Coach remotely in live sessions both in and out of the saddle. The increased use of zoom facilitates seminars , discussions and learning.
Social Media inspires me to be creative in my conversations and the way I share stories and insights has evolved with me now able to offer a full range of digital courses. Short open access courses sit well alongside longer courses where Coach contact and conversations form the framework for guided study and reflection.
I have written and will be releasing courses on a wide range of topics including TEN (Training Excellence Now) for both dressage and jump riders, a Freestyle Dressage Choreography Guide, a Guide to Hygge with Your Horse and Rider with a Plan your arena side companion to enjoying your schooling sessions complete with video explanations, floor plans and direct contact with me.

My Coach Story
I began coaching with The Pony Club and started my BHS Exam training at Greenacres Riding School in Puxley. Later I trained at Brampton Stables, Wellington Riding and Gleneagles.
My love of horses has taken me on lots of adventures competing and coaching. I’m particularly proud of the time I spent working in New Zealand and my own sporting career with Dressage Horses Jack, Sebastian and Neptune.
I am delighted to have been awarded Centre10 Runner Up Coach of the Year and to have been nominated this year for a U.K. Coaching Hero Award.
Find a few of my Family favourite presents that you can purchase online and arrange to have delivered.
I have included gifts that I love to send and to receive and the horse presents have been approved by Neptune.
In fact why wait for Christmas, these treats are wonderful to exchange at any time of year!
