Equestrian Coaching

Learn to train or rehabilitate your horse using scientific and classical training principles, to create a sound, balanced and reliable partner. 

I focus on using scientific and classical training principles, which respect the horse’s mental and physical capabilities.

I believe there are no ‘problem’ horses, only a horse who is suffering and struggling to communicate. I give special regard to the circumstances and conformation of each individual, attempting to analyse and understand before prescribing a way forward. Getting to the cause of an issue is a more effective way to solve it, combined with my ‘trial and error’ approach to finding the best way forward.

My students focus heavily on unmounted work to support their training and rehabilitation. These techniques increase the range of tools available for problem solving, without fighting the symptoms of combined asymmetries.

Once the horse understands from the ground, the progression to riding is a more natural one.


  • Observe your horse’s natural asymmetry from all angles, seeing the corrections you need to make

  • Develop relaxation, balance and rhythm

  • Provide clear guidance to individual body parts

  • Develop bend and search through the body, and a stepping under of the inside hind leg in both directions

  • Reduce imbalance and stiffness, starting to correct natural asymmetry

  • Increase suppleness and develop the musculature of the horse

  • Introduce lateral work without the rider causing imbalance



  • Develop the foundations of partnership with your horse, including a strong bond

  • Improve your body language, communication and horsemanship skills

  • Increase your horse’s motivation and levels of responsibility


  • Develop longevity and fitness

  • Prevent future balance issues by teaching your horse to appropriately turn their shoulders, and strengthen their lateral bend


Work in Hand

  • Introduce the rein aids in preparation for riding

  • Introduce lateral work using the two reins and without the rider causing imbalance


  • Develop confidence under saddle or bareback, with the bridle or the cavesson

  • Observe then improve your body position on the horse

  • Understand the different aids, and how to apply them without tension

  • Choose exercises to support, strengthen and supple your horse 

  • Develop a training plan to support your riding goals while being conscious of your horse’s natural asymmetry and individual circumstances
