Rider development is central to the ethos of our centre. We are at the pinnacle of horse and rider development whether that be helping a beginner lay down the foundations or coaching a rider to international success. No challenge is to small or great.
James' experience of training his own horses and working with top international trainers has given him very special experience. This allied with his good communication skills and UKCC accreditation make him an exceptional trainer.
James trains all showjumping and utilises excellent trainers for dressage. He has trained people from Novice through to international standard. He recently found a pony for a young girl (Megan Warren) who had only jumped competitively for a month and she qualified for the Blue chip winter national finals and Scope 3 months later.
Whether its training a child to qualify for a local show, a national competition or internationally he aplies the same care and attention.
Past students include a Lady returning to riding who aimed to achieve her ambition of competing at a national final. James found her a suitable horse and following some training she qualified for four finals.
