Travels around Europe, and familiar venues!

In February Charlotte myself and the rest of the team went for a really fun two weeks to a competition at Jerez in Spain. Four horses went in total, Carl […]

Blimey where did January go!

Its been a pretty busy January for me this year, which is a pleasant change from being snowed in, or having frozen arenas for weeks on end! After taking a few days off over new year it was straight back to coaching clients. Many of them are preparing for the various BD Winter Regional Championships […]

Both of them though have a really strong desire to improve their dressage […]

Touring around the USA!!

Never to old!

I thought I would break from my usual blogs this time, so I can tell you about a lovely client of mine. Her name is Carol, and I have been coaching her for approximately 3 years. When I first met Carol she wasn’t the most confident rider when it came to the flat work, but […]

An eventful Europeans!

Well what a roller coaster of emotions last week turned out to be. We were at the Dressage European Championships at Aachen in Germany. Our last visit to this venue 2 years ago, resulted in Valegro having a bit of a “blip” in what is otherwise an incredible career when he lost for the one […]
