Rachael Clay 

I'm a BHS APC and a Centre10 Advanced Coach using applied psychology techniques to help with nerves, confidence and performance issues.  I have a special interest in performance mindset and mental skills training in relation to all areas of riding but particularly with regards to competitive riding.  I've coached for over 25 years aswell as having 'real' jobs but my love for coaching keeps bringing me back to it! 

My passion is eventing and I have competed up to intermediate level and have a wonderful horse now who I hope to be able to get out competing next year.  

I am a calm, supportive and empathetic coach and I love working with people who enjoy a challenge, want to learn new things and are willing to have a go.  There is no one way with horses, it is finding out what works for you, to enable you to be at your best to work together as a team.  The key for me is to have fun and enjoy the process along the way.

"Take small steps, even if sometimes they may seem to be sideways or backwards steps.  They are all part of  learning.  Those steps strengthen your foundations. 

Be patient , trust the process and just keep moving.  

Small simple steps done consistently to the best of your ability add up to the big things. 

Celebrate all of those little wins. They matter"
