BHS Riding Coach & JournalistBased in Dorset
Riding Instructor, (BHS AI/Level 3 Complete)
I am a passionate coach and an insured accredited professional BHS freelance riding instructor working around Poole, Blandford, Corfe Castle and Weymouth in Dorset. Currently preparing to take my Level 4, I coach both adults and children and recently left my position as Senior Riding Coach at Bryanston School teaching 13-18 year olds and coaching at its popular Easter and Summer camps (from 8 years to adults). References available.
While my passion is eventing, I also love dressage (test riding) and show jumping and compete at British Eventing producing a young horse to place at BE100. I am available to groom and coach at affiliated BE, dressage and SJ competitions or at clinics/camps. I also ride/exercise horses – groundwork, hacking and schooling. I have a Highfield Level 3 Award (3 day) in First Aid (valid until Sept 2023). I also train students wishing to take their BHS Level 1-3 in care and riding.
I have published work in National Geographic Traveller, Horse & Hound and Your Horse – see my magazine rack above. I also edit and project manage consumer and business publications and provide content for national newspaper supplements on everything from beauty and fitness to travel.
I produce professional social marketing posts including dynamic video footage with/without music and have worked with a local drone pilot to produce video footage below for professional riders, yards and event venues. I have also posted fun compelling social media footage for the RAC Saddle Club on Facebook and Instagram boosting followers to nearly 2k on Facebook. I have also produced websites for the RAC Saddle Club and event rider Ben Liles. Be it a blog, video or website updates, contact me for affordable, honest and achievable results.
