I am a freelance equestrian coach, and I opperate across areas of the South. I can typically be found coaching in and around West Sussex, Berkshire, and Surrey across an extended weekend (Friday - Sunday); and Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, and Oxfordshire during the week (Monday - Thursday).I teach polework, gridwork, show jumping, and dressage on a 1:1 basis, and also have experience of working with riding schools, Pony Club centres, and RDA. I am a HayGrazer E-riders trainer, so can help you with training and practice, and I can video your test.I demand a lot of myself, and other people, which comes across in my teaching in a good way. I train regularly, and am always looking for ways to further my own skillset to better help my clients. I make time to get to know my clients as individuals. I believe it is important to educate riders, rather than just telling them which buttons to press. I help my clients to develop an understanding of what they're feeling, why and how to correct it, so they can make best use of their time outside of lessons. Of course, I am always happy to look at videos and give advice between lessons too if it's needed. I'm also more than happy to attend shows and help with warm-ups, and can offer schooling also upon request.

|Ethos and about me
||My aim is to educate riders. I mean to develop their understanding and feel, so that they can become autonomous and confident in their own decision-making outside of lessons, for the benefit of themselves and their horses.
I firmly believe in the value of achieving each horse's potential, whether they're a cob, ex-racehorse, ex-riding school or competition warmblood. I welcome riders who want to compete (just for fun, or take it more seriously) and also those that don't!
