I have competed at elementary dressage and open showing (working and show classes), winning championships in both disciplines.
I've trained to medium at home and have dealt with young, inexperienced and difficult horses. I am only confident to jump up to 80cm, no higher, as it is not my chosen discipline.
I am a confident but soft, kind rider. Happy to school, lunge or outride horses. I have work ridden for many people, from challenging ponies to overly sensitive thoroughbreds whom I can get references from if wanted. I have brought my own horses up the grades and trained on experienced horses to gain knowledge.
My trainers in South Africa are both accomplished riders in dressage, western pleasure, show jumping and showing.
I have also trined with a liberty trainer and have brought my own horse on with reward based training in this method, training tricks for the film industry.
