With the yard and arenas, the lodge, Annette’s hospitality and Andrew’s coaching skills it is only natural to offer short residential courses and training weekends.


Andrew’s enthusiasm for teaching dressage is equal to his passion for theoretical analysis and the presentation of lectures, demonstrations and leading discussion groups. As he sees it, a sound theoretical understanding of the dressage process forms the ‘instruction manual’ and is both a guide and trouble shooting device of the system. As senior lecturer for T.T.T. for 15 years, he is well practised in presenting formal lectures in a clear, logical and interesting way.

Andrew confesses to being a ‘why’ child and never happy with the answer “because I said so”. He has always sought sound reason and logic for his training principles based on a working knowledge of the horses structure and bio-mechanics.


Courses are tailor made to suit the interests and requirements of each group. We always try to match up a group of like minded riders at a similar stage of riding development who are likely to enjoy each others company.

We plan very busy days with lots of interesting activites in a friendly, encouraging and fun atmosphere.

Activities include:

  • Individual coaching
  • Equitation analysis and correction
  • Gait study and analysis
  • Video analysis
  • Biomechanics study
  • Understanding lateral work
  • Understanding transitions
  • Training to canter including flying changes
  • Working in hand
  • Gymnastic jumping and pole training
  • Understanding Key principles
  • Test riding and evaluation

We are also able to offer other specialist input such as equipilates and equine massage therapy.
