We compete up to 4* level in eventing with dressage and SJ during the winter. Opportunity for competent rider to compete our young horses in Dressage/SJ, and eventing. Applicants must be reasonable and ambitious riders as we are ideally looking for a 2nd string competition rider to assist our senior (FEI ranked) rider.

Our senior rider is a hard task master in both riding and stable management - this is not liberty hall and only the best will do and our students become the best.
