Heroes is here for You and Your Horse.
Hi there, I'm Alison!
I’ll be your Club Coach. I have been involved in lots of Riding Clubs as a Rider and a Coach.
When I began to build my website I was determined to bring a positive space for riders to the online world.
I am focussed on recreating the ultimate coaching environment. I enjoy delivering sessions in indoor arenas at special performance day camps and I wanted to share this experience with riders online.
A good performance environment is important for horse and rider to learn.
I concentrate on simple steps and super strengths.
Riders can think about their mindset, to ride in the now and to feel good about their riding.
I am bringing all your favourite aspects of riding and connecting with other riders to Heroes - Your Online Riding Club.

You will have a new way to boost your confidence and a better partnership with your horse.

I always put horses first. My Coach ethos is centred around learning new skills and sharing insights.
I still compete and train. I know what it feels like to celebrate milestones and to face challenges.
My approach includes considering how my horse is feeling and reacting to my questions.
Over the past 30 years, I've helped riders around the world to build a great connection with their horses. I have been lucky to love and ride many horses too so I know what it’s like to care for and train horses.
Pictured below is the lovely Veteran horse Salvation, competing with me at Vale View where we placed 10th in the Cavago 2023 British Dressage Associated Championships.
“Alison is an incredibly intuitive coach with an energy that is contagious. The live video catch ups are motivational and inspiring. My horse and I were scoring higher after just one of Alison's sessions.
The distance between us (I am in Australia) is no barrier with Alison's excellent understanding and guidance. I am so proud to be one of her students and to take part in her Rider with a Plan programme.”
"The stables at Northlands is a new equestrian establishment based in Nairobi. As we develop, some of our key objectives are to provide a higher quality of learning for our riders and to enhance opportunities for riding in Kenya. The use of online learning platforms and the technology that goes with them, has been a major advantage making connection to professionals and their wealth of knowledge and experience, easy and seamless.
Alison has been supporting the stables at Northlands as we work to improve lessons and set up to meet international standards. She has been instrumental in our development and we look forward to improving and developing further with her. "
