I believe in making things happen!

Coming from a non-horsey family, I didn’t start riding until I was 16. I quickly went on to ride for a private yard helping with backing youngsters and riding troublesome horses until at 19 I bought myself my first horse, Oyster Bird.


I set up as a freelance instructor in 2008, schooling, exercising and teaching a wide variety of clients, children and adults, including people with physical issues (Hip, knee, back, hypermobility, hearing loss and even a brain injury) as well as clients returning to riding following a break, riding club riders and those wanting to begin competing.

DeeIn 2010, my husband Alex and I jumped at the opportunity to purchase our own equestrian yard, “Springhill Barn” set in the beautiful hills of Shutford, near Banbury. A truly peaceful setting where horses and ponies can stay for schooling and clients can enjoy lessons and/or instructional hacking through the surrounding countryside. Since then I have been busy teaching on and off site, running Foundation Clinics and caring for all manner of equines either staying for a holiday or to further their education. As a petite rider, I specialise in producing ponies and am passionate about developing balanced equines for riders to take further in any chosen discipline.

HarryMy competitive nature didn’t surface until 2011 when I rode my home produced horse Ascot at the British Dressage Preliminary Regional Championship and won! Going on to gain 7th place at the National Championship. 

Since 2012 I have been placed in the top five at each Regional Championship with my Hanoverian mare Delores. I am currently riding at medium level with her.
