“My aim as a coach is to work with riders to improve position, confidence and performance so that they are able to achieve the most out of themselves and their horses for a perfect partnership.”

As an equestrian performance coach, I am dedicated to unlocking the full potential of riders and their equine partners. With a deep passion for horsemanship and years of experience in the equestrian world, I offer personalised coaching tailored to each rider's unique goals and aspirations.

 

Through a comprehensive approach that combines technical expertise, biomechanical analysis, and personalised training plans, I empower riders to excel in their chosen discipline, whether it's dressage, show jumping, eventing, or recreational riding. My coaching philosophy emphasises building a strong foundation of fundamentals while fostering a positive and supportive learning environment.

As your equestrian performance coach, I will work closely with you to identify strengths, address weaknesses, and develop strategies to overcome challenges. Whether you're a competitive rider striving for success in the show ring or an enthusiast looking to deepen your connection with your horse, I am committed to helping you reach your fullest potential.

I have been coaching and specialising in rider fitness and biomechanics for over 15 years. I also have over 30 years of ridden experience competing up to national level in dressage and showjumping.

I also have many other Equestrian qualifications including being an Accredited Professional BHS Coach. I have a Diploma in Fitness and Personal Training. As well as many other qualifications in fitness and mindset coaching. 

Fully qualified and insured BHS Accredited Professional Coach. I am available for coaching in flatwork, polework, jumping and confidence specific coaching sessions. I am also happy to help with training for any equine exams. I have limited availability for regular coaching slots but also hold almost weekly clinics (see below). Also available for Pony Club coaching. 

 

  • Dressage Training 

  • Jumping Training

  • XC Training

  • Polework

  • Confidence Building 

  • Rider Biomechanics  

Rider biomechanics is where we look at the make up and movement of the rider and how it effects our horses way of going. 

The mechanical horse is a great tool for any rider, from novice to advanced level. It is a great way to look at us as a rider without the influence of a real horse. We are able to look at our position and straightness and work on areas of our riding in a controlled and safe environment. Sessions involve analysis and exercises to help improve your position and can be private or group sessions. These Sessions are held at Writtle College, Equine Unit on MJ the dressage simulator. 

Rider fitness is a huge part of the equestrian performance package. And being fit and healthy enough to ride enables us to perform better as riders. 

This is not just cardiovascular fitness but also that your body and muscles are fit enough to perform the task required - riding! 

 

As a qualified Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer. I offer several fitness options: 

  • 1-1 training 

  • Small Group Training 

  • Rider Fitness Classes 

  • Online Coaching 

Having studied many aspect of sports psychology over the years and through my degree. I am very aware of the way our brain and mindset can have a huge effect on our riding. From decision making, to motivation, to building confidence, all are so important to help us ride at our best. 

 

I often use many mindset coaching techniques in all my training but will soon also be offering workshops and 1-1 sessions to help with areas you may struggle in.
