Kate Appleyard: BHSSM, BHSII, Professional Accredited Coach

Available to train all levels of horses and riders in every aspects of equestrianism.

Training success with riders from grass roots to National Level British Dressage, British eventing and British show jumping.  I adopt a structured training programme individually tailored to the needs of both horse and rider, with the emphasis being on the correct influence the rider has on the horse. With this in mind the horses welfare is priority and I never use short cuts at any level. I endeavour to make each training session fun and productive, and give the rider something positive to go away with. I am happy to teach groups or individuals.

On a personal note I have competed across all the disciplines. I have evented to Advanced Level, Show jumped to Foxhunter Level and competed British Dressage to Medium Level. I have produced many horses from unbroken to successful competition horses, so am more than happy to train young and green horses and  riders.
