I am an accredited RWYM coach and have trained with Mary Wanless for nearly 15 years. I have over 35 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 work, 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 or day clinic for groups 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!

Masterson Method - Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork
More recently I have become an advanced student in the Masterson Method (Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork) and am currently offering discounted treatments of £30 before I am fully qualified.
What to expect? Each session takes 1.5 - 2 hours. Horses should not be worked for a few hours before treatment and it is usually best to give them at least one day off work afterwards.
What is the Masterson Method? The Masterson Method® – Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork, is a unique, interactive method of equine massage and bodywork in which you learn to recognize and use the responses of the horse to your touch to find and release accumulated tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. In contrast to most traditional modalities, it enables the horse to actively participate in the process of releasing tension. It is something you do with the horse, rather than to the horse.
