I have worked as an equestrian coach for approaching 35 years, generally specialising in competitive showjumping, but with a firm belief that the path to success is founded on kind and correct flatwork.
Over the years, as well as producing many horses to jump at 120 level, I have had the opportunity of training with some of the best coaches across all disciplines, and continue to ride and train myself.
My philosophy is that consistent and progressive training leads to a stronger and more confident partnership, making goals easier to achieve.

I offer positive and sympathetic coaching for all levels, with the focus on building a confident and harmonious partnership between horse and rider.
I have qualified as a BHSII and Advanced Centre10 Coach, I have trained and competed horses to Foxhunter level showjumping, competitive dressage, and more recently for British Eventing. With this, I have many years experience in coaching and training, working with riders not only for competitive success, but also for personal progression, and often with horses that are ‘not-so perfect’.
It is important to me that riders embrace the concept of working the horses in a way that is kind and effective, and how this helps to create a partnership that is biomechanically functional, which leads to sustainability and longevity, as well as trust and resilience within the competitive arena.
I have a firm belief that horses will perform their best if they are fully prepared physically and mentally for the job in hand, and this process takes time!
Fitness and skills need to be practiced for sure, but a clear understanding between horse and rider, based on mutual respect, is key to creating a trusting and confident partnership.
In training, it is important to set the horse up well by using exercises that follow classical principles, in order that the question of the fence is a relatively simple one for the horse to answer.
Individual coaching sessions are available locally in the South East Area, and I offer tailored individual remote coaching packages and programmes.
