"Brilliant equestrian trainer who really takes her time to get to know both horse and rider. Anne Marie has been instrumental in building my confidence as someone who hasn't ridden for over 30 years. Whether you're looking to progress up the British Dressage levels, or simply want to build confidence as a rider for hacking and fun rides, she will be able to cater the coaching to you. Anne Marie has also coached my daughter successfully for NSEA dressage events where she has been placed".
CASE STUDY: 3* EVENT HORSE
“ I recently sent a truly oversized event horse, who will be starting his first season of BE Advanced next season, to Anne Marie for some targeted schooling to support and strengthen his core, muscle mass ‘behind’ and to help develop some self-carriage - all of which would benefit him tremendously in all three phases of eventing. He also needed professional training on several advanced dressage movements which he would be required to do as part of this ‘step up’ to Advanced. The changes seen were so encouraging and significant that he happily stayed with her a month and it was a ‘wrench’ to eventually take him away!
Anne Marie is not only an extremely talented, determined yet sympathetic rider but she is one of the most intuitive horsewomen I have ever known. She immediately identified his physical weaknesses and instinctively knew exactly what to do to help him to correct these problems with ‘targeted’ training. Her ‘feel’, her clear aides, together with her understanding of equine locomotion are exceptional. All of which made this transformation much ‘easier’ for the horse! She is also a complete joy to be around, both for the horses and their ‘human counterparts’.
I cannot recommend the training provided by this exceptional lady highly enough, regardless of what ‘level’ of experience of the horse or their chosen equine discipline. I will look forward to regular ‘refresher’ courses whenever needed in the future. It was a thoroughly happy, gratifying and valuable experience!
