Working with riders of all levels, from beginners to riding club and Grand Prix competitors, Sarah is passionate about getting the best out of the combination placed before her.
So what’s actually different?
At the heart of it all is Sarah’s ability to help riders achieve a consciousness of their position and consistency of aids. The result is simple. Improved rider control and confidence. And an ability to truly school, train and compete horses effectively.
Difficult horses become willing partners, average horses stand out from the crowd and, well you can guess what happens when the true talent of a fantastic horse is unlocked.
The way it works
Sarah works with riders to set out ambitions from the start and then goals for along the way. Working through classical training scales, Sarah always makes sure riders have something to be working towards.
Key to Sarah’s methods is making sure that riders not only know how to successfully ride movements, but actually that they know how to correct things should it go wrong.
Sarah takes a problem solving approach to her coaching and is happy working with any type of horse, from complicated ex-racehorses to highly strung competition horses and of course those horses that need much more encouragement to expend energy!
Knowing how much goes on from out of the saddle to create a healthy and happy athlete, Sarah also works closely with clients to make sure they fully understand all elements of their horse’s management – respecting each horse’s individual feeding, turn out and daily needs.
For those wishing to or are already successfully competing, Sarah will work to develop competition strategies and can provide coaching at competitions.
