Jumping or flatwork – sessions are tailored to suit individuals goals. Please ensure if you are organising a group session that all riders are roughly at the same level of riding.

No arena? No problem! Coaching available while you hack or ride in the field, as this can present new situations and challenges that you wouldn’t normally face riding in an arena. Also ideal for happy hackers that lack the facilities – or don’t need them – but still want to improve or make the most of their surroundings!

Confidence, age, and ability level are no barriers to success. Whether you’re learning to canter or want to better your jumping position – my sympathetic and constructive approach to coaching will help you reach your goals as a rider and partner to your horse.

Coaching Cover: Short staffed? Lesson cover available for weekdays, nights or weekends. Rates variable.

Shiatsu Sessions

As a third year student, I am competent to give shiatsu for relaxation, to reduce tension, and to relieve tightness that may lead to further problems down the line! For more information on this practice, see my post here!

A quick explanation on the therapy from the Equine Shiatsu Association:

“Shiatsu is a form of Japanese physiotherapy which can be used to treat a wide variety of issues. The majority of the work covers soft tissue injuries and movement dysfunction, such as tight muscles and stiff joints. It is safe and suitable for most horses, both to deal with specific physical concerns, and to manage stress, mental and emotional health problems.

Equine Shiatsu is purely a manual therapy and uses finger and thumb pressure on acupuncture points along the meridians in order to free restrictions in the body which allow and maintain good health – the same points as used in Veterinary Acupuncture. This pressure along the meridians, together with assisted stretching, joint mobilisation and massage, allows the body to release pain and tension gently adjusting both posture and attitude.”
