I am delighted to have been asked to give a talk on “Finding your independent seat and an elastic contact” as part of the gala dinner at the Retraining of Racehorses South East camp at Hickstead on July 11th.

I’m holding a demo at Cranleigh RDA on April 6th, 2 – 4.30pm where I’ll be bringing a number of horses to work. I’ll be showing the German training scales and how they can be applied to benefit horses of all sorts of different breeds, ages, disciplines and levels. I will ride a few horses and some of my clients will also ride so the audience can see how different horse and rider combinations can work. The aim is for everyone attending to leave with something to take away and work on themselves.[Read more…] about Riding Demonstration to Raise Funds for Cranleigh RDA
Sarah Sjoholm-Patience gave a dressage demonstration at the Epsom Riding for the Disabled Group on Saturday 10th November, which raised over £1,000 for the charity.

The charity provides disabled people with the opportunity to ride and benefit both their health and wellbeing.
Today I took one of my young horses over to Quob Stabes to do a young horse training demo during their Strictly Come Dressage evening. The night seemed to be a great success, with over 200 tickets sold, a good experience for my ride, and lots of awareness for a great charity.
