My teaching has now become my all consuming passion. I love it, from grass roots to advanced from 4 year old children to 70 year old adults, on cobs, thoroughbreds, Irish sport horses, warmbloods.. I teach them all, unaffiliated, affiliated, people who don't compete, nervous riders, confident riders. The work I do with clients covers a huge range from helping those who need to develop a bond with their horse, (cuddle training, as I call it) to teaching lungeing, managing horses that buck and rear, horses that bolt, horses that won't go forward, horses that people have given up with. We start with the basics and build naturally from there. It's seldom easy but in nearly 20 years of training I haven't given up with a single one of them. I truly believe there is no such thing as a bad horse. only bad training.
For those with a competitive bent, my clients compete from Introductory up to Advanced Medium. I have clients winning on huge percentages at every grade, wins at area festivals, top ten placings at regional level, selection for BD Home Internationals and winning local unaffiliated championships. In eventing, I have clients posting scores as low as a 19, clients competing at Intermediate and Advanced level eventing and one client recently competing at international level with her dressage score putting her higher than most professionals. I also have clients competing and placed in the top ten for the last 3 years in the Young Event horse classes at Bramham three day event.
