You are here Training
Saturday, July 20, 2019

Whatever level of dressage you or your horse are currently competing, we have both the facilities and experience to help you further.

Olympic rider and European Team Bronze medalist, Nicola McGivern is available for training and consultancy; whether you wish to have an assessment of your horse, long term training plan, or simply a one off lesson to help with an awkward problem, please feel able to contact Nicola at any time. "Let me help you with those competition nerves too!  I love getting into the brain of the rider as well as the horse!"

For your horse we have talented riders, directly supervised by Nicola, so you can rest assured that even if you are not able to be here yourself, your horse will be in good hands. 


We believe that the welfare of the horse comes before all else; to that end we hope you will find our training methods and care systems to be of the highest level and we welcome any inspection.

Our training is always sympathetic to the individual horse; not simply a "one fits all" methodology, but more a realistic approach to the best a particular horse can achieve.

This understanding of limitations extends to the rider; we will not expect you to ride like a seasoned international, when your goal is Novice level.  On the contrary, we seek to help you attain your goals, not ours! 

Nicola is proud to have trained riders and horses placed at International level as well as those competing at Grand Prix level and highest placed Junior and Young Riders at European Championships.
