I take great pleasure in the successes of all my clients and am pleased that they are happy to recommend me.......

Dawn has helped me to develop as a rider from preparing for my Pony Club B test through to competing in my first International competition and establishing myself at Intermediate level British Eventing. At the age of 14 I got Nora, an inexperienced 5 year old and neither of us had a clue about eventing and definitely not dressage!
Dawn has been very patient with us, starting with the very basics and working our way up through the levels. Dawn makes sure you are established at each level before moving up to the next, there is no cutting corners and you can't get away with anything, she has eyes in the back of her head! Eight years on and we are qualified for our first 2* event, and I'd like to thank Dawn for all her help in getting to this stage. If you're looking for someone to take you to the next level and really make a difference to you're riding I couldn't recommend Dawn enough.

Dawn has been teaching me and my horse for over a year and in that time we have gone from low 60% at Novice to 65- 70 % and progressed to Elementary. Dawn has helped me to enjoy my horse and given me confidence to go out and perform at my best. An effective communicator, who can motivate and has a wealth of experience to draw on. A practical and down to earth instructor who can remain calm and maintain a sense of humour. Her eye to detail and approach to correcting both horse and rider has helped me to become a more refined rider and improve my horses way of going.
Our results have improved beyond my wildest expectations this year. We were placed 3rd in Pet Plan Area Festival qualifying for the Championship. We have also qualified for the British Dressage Regional Championships at Novice being placed 3rd and qualifying for the British Dressage National Winter Championships . Without reservation I put our success down to Dawn.
Congratulations to Kim Young and Ad Appel on their first visit to the British Dressage National Winter Championships 2013! They did very well indeed in the Blue Chip Novice Restricted Championship and were just two mistakes off a top placing. So proud of you both!

Dawn has taught my daughter, Georgia, for a number of years, helping her to attain her Pony Club B Test and much more. Dawn has not only given my daughter confidence but also our horses, by teaching them in a sympathetic & positive way. She is always punctual and has a wealth of experience. Dawn is highly regarded, classically trained and a great communicator. What's more she has a great sense of humour, even in the pouring rain!
I have looked at your website and it is really good. I can testify for you also as you helped me obtain my BHS exams Stage 1 and 2 at The Grove Equitation Centre, for Wycombe Riding Club, many, many (in fact far tooooo many) years ago.

Dawn is a fantastic coach who has become a very valuable part of our team, helping improve me as a rider and the horses I ride from oversized (!) youngsters to more established horses. She is straight talking with a wonderful sense of humour combined with an incredible eye for detail which is honed to both horse and rider. This allows her to work with combinations to get the best from them and help them push a little further than they thought possible!
