I am passionate about equestrian sport and also teaching riders to develop safe and effective riding and jumping skills and with the improved skills watch their confidence and results dramatically improve. Watching riders enjoy their learning and develop a love of the sport gives me enormous pleasure.
I hold Coaching Accreditation at EA Level 3 in Showjumping and L2 General. I have been teaching for many years.
I have come through the sport and the accreditation process simultaneously commencing in 1984. Having been self-supporting my entire career, Coaching, clinics and horse training were my main sources of income, which supported my active competition in both disciplines and gave me opportunity to coach and mentor many of Australia’s finest competitors in both Showjumping and Eventing riders.
I am available for private, semi-private, group lessons as well as clinics across the country.
As an EA Accredited Coach Educator, I am actively involved in the training of coaches and am able to assist them to progress through the EA Coach Accreditation process. I am also involved in the Training and ongoing development of Coach Educators.
Certification of Horse Management and Riding are also offered through the EA Coaching platform for those that seek education without aspiring to be coaches or to become involved at a later stage.
