About me


Trainee Teacher

I am passionate about correct bio-mechanical movement in horses in all disciplines and how it can be achieved using the natural gentle methods taught in the Ecole de Légèreté. Many of the horses I come across are in need of remediation and it is a pleasure to help them. An even greater pleasure is showing owners how to help their own horses have a long and athletic life. Modern dressage teaching fails the novice rider in both theory and practice and unfortunately there is a tendency for riders to see the horse as a piece of sporting equipment when it should never be the case.
