I am an accredited RWYM coach and have trained with Mary Wanless for nearly 10 years. I have over thirty-five years experience and have been coaching for over 20 years. 

I am very interested in Rider Biomechanics and how a rider's position affects the horse's way of going, and also how this combines with classical dressage and modern Equitation Science. I have extensive experience with all manners of behavioural problems from napping to refusing to load. I teach all grades of riders and also offer sessions on in-hand, lunging, long-reining and loose schooling. I have been using Clicker Training (which is a purely positive reinforcement system) for many years and find this an in valuable tool with troubled or sour horses.

I am based in Woodcote, South Oxfordshire and offer individual lessons within 5 miles, I am happy to travel further afield for groups of three or more or day clinics which can be a mixture of ridden and workshop exercises.  I also have access to a simulator and  offer lessons in the dry which are popular over the winter!
