It’s a time to focus on your partnership. To show how you communicate with each other. To concentrate on rhythm, balance and ease of movement.

Hi there, I'm Alison!

I’m an Equestrian Coach and have been helping riders develop great partnerships with their horses since 1994. I also ride and compete in Dressage Competitions both at home (online) and away at shows with Salvation. 

I believe that everyone has the potential to learn and grow as an equestrian. I also feel strongly that Dressage is a really fun and effective way of strengthening communication between horse and rider. I enjoy helping people to adopt my Feel Good Dressage Philosophy. Dressage can and should be fun for horse and rider and my job as a Coach is to guide the partnership so that their experience is positive. 

Join me on your dressage adventure and let me help you meet the challenges of the sport whilst looking after your horse.

My Coach Ethos

My love of horses led me to a career as a professional coach. I still place the horse at the heart of everything we do.

I always put the horse first and show riders how to make sure their horse is a willing partner, enjoying the arena time and their connection with their rider.

Set Up Guides

3 Popular Coaching Options.

1. Video Feed Forward

Choose from one of our popular sessions or get in touch with special requests. You will receive guidance for riding and filming your session. Upload our video and then Alison will watch and send you pointers you can use to feed forward to your next session. You will be able to work on developing your riding skills and be building on your strengths. 

2. Arena Challenges

Work with Alison on progressive challenges to help you improve your horse’s way of going and your riding skills. This is a great way to bring variety to your training programme. A fun way to motivate yourself to keep improving and to track your progress. 

3. Rider Reviews

Regular reviews help you to see how you and your horse are progressing. These reviews are included in the Rider With A Plan programme so that Riders can receive coach guidance and support as they work through their programme. They can also be used by Riders who want to check in with a coach. Riders will upload a 10minute video and book in with Alison for a Coaching Conversation to discuss the strengths of their partnership and to agree their next steps.

It’s essential that you have reliable WiFi connection to make the most of the coaching session. The headphones you choose will impact on your session too, you need to be comfortable, able to hear clearly and be confident that there is sufficient battery life and Bluetooth range.

There are several options for the coaching call. Ridesum is a valuable App with some good premium features available on subscription. You will enjoy the best results when it is used with the Pixem system.
