What do you mainly use your horse for?

It was a tough challenge for Nick when he started teaching me. I had been doing dressage for a year or so but really wanted to event. However, a horse lacking in confidence and a rider lacking in technique is not a good combination. It was leading to erratic jumping rounds that I was starting to dread.

A year on and thanks to Nick’s extremely patient and encouraging support much has improved. My riding is more effective and consistent and as a result my horse is more relaxed and responsive. We are now happy around a BE80 course and are planning to move up to BE90 soon. What’s more our dressage scores have improved too.

I now realise that regular, consistent training is crucial if you want to progress. Trying to improve on your own with an odd lesson here and there is just not enough. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone in this position – he is very supportive and encouraging but also experienced and knowledgeable enough to help you get the best from your horse.

I never got the chance to thank you properly for all the help you gave me in college and how much confidence you gave me.

I genuinely feel that if we hadn't had you as a tutor, I wouldn't know what I do now and I would still be doubting myself.

I want you to know that all your hard work with us did not go unnoticed .... most of all, we all saw an improvement within ourselves with you as a tutor.
