Riding and Schooling

I offer a riding service to a limited number of clients for exercise or hacking if you lack the time, or schooling for flatwork, lunging/long reining, showjumping including competition. I can ride horses and ponies as I am 5'4" and approx 8.5 stones. I will only select horses and ponies which are genuine and not just broken or too crazy! I have lots of experience but with that comes age! Unfortunately I am not 20 any more. My riding history includes breaking and schooling youngsters for many disciplines. I have produced my own horses for showjumping up to approx 1.35m and have been to many national finals including young horse finals with good placings in 4 and 5 year olds. I have qualified HOYS on 3 different occasions. I have won and been placed at Hickstead including young riders derby and jumped in the main ring. There have been many difficult horses over the years which I have learned a lot from.

One of my clients has dressage horses which I jump school for some variety in their work.

I have also competed a client's RoR dressage horse at the Prelim Finals at Blenheim Palace after qualifying him at 4 years old and we were back again this year as a 6 year old for 10th place.

I am equally happy spending time schooling and have helped with schooling show ponies, dressage horses and eventers. I have also worked with hunters and am happy to school XC but do not compete BE. Long lining/ lunging I have used a number of times on riding and driving horses to improve their way of going. There are many situations where long lining is beneficial and I am more than happy to teach others as well as provide the service myself.
