Hello and Welcome! I'm Kate Murphy BSCC Level 3 - British Showjumping Coach - Advanced Centre 10 Coach & Testt Certified Coach. With over 30 years of competition experience I have enjoyed some fantastic moments at Hickstead in the main arena, HOYS finals, Addington Young Horse Champs and BS National Champs. Through coaching I hope to share my experience and learning with you. I welcome all levels of rider from any background. My passion is showjumping but I am happy to coach non jumping riders too. I am an Advanced Centre 10 Coach. The Centre 10 programme has given me some fantastic tools to help riders particularly off horse (zoom or similar) with developing mental skills using sports psychology techniques. I am able to offer sessions for clients covering topics including assessing mental performance, performance lifestyle, confidence, motivation, goalsetting, visualisation and lots more.
I hold qualifications in both human and equine massage. That has given me invaluable insights into the human and equine athletes. My interest in biomechanics and function of the rider led me to find Andy Thomas. Andy is a chartered physiotherapist and performance biomechanics analyst of the human equestrian athlete - working with grassroots riders to Olympic level. I am thrilled to say that having completed Andy’s Testt Certified course for assessing and correcting rider symmetry, I am now a Testt Certified Coach. This will allow me to help riders using the Testt process developed by Andy himself.
