“Sophie has helped me improve not only my skills but also my confidence and I have now exceeded all of my expectations in riding! I thoroughly look forward to my lessons each week.”
Sophie has shown a consistent ability to school and train horses to a nationally competitive level. She believes that correct training from the start will put your horse ahead of the competition.
Short and long term re-training is available for all horses including off the track thoroughbreds and standardbreds as well as problem horses.
If you have a specific issue you are wanting to overcome in your training, or you just want some help to progress to the next level of competition with your horse, Sophie can help with training and follow-up lessons to help you achieve your goals!
Sophie works methodically to diagnose where the problem stems from and work to strengthen the correct responses in order to progress to the next level of training. With a horse who is light and responsive to the foundation responses (stop, go and turn) your progression through the next stages is a simple one.
Short and long term schooling is available as well as follow-up tuition to help you get the best out of your training investment.
