Ruth joined us in May 2021 and now covers holidays and one Sunday a month.

I am a BHS Stage 3 Coach and I have been teaching since 2009. I am a Challenge Awards and Pony Stars Coach and a Ride Safe Instructor. I am a Pony Club Instructor and teach for local Pony Clubs. I teach at local riding schools and provide private freelance tuition to riders on their own horses, either at their yard or at my own. I have a holistic approach to teaching.

Having worked with children and adults with special needs at equine therapy centre’s and as an RDA Instructor, I am fully equipped to teach people with any differing needs such as autism. I have a calm and logical approach to teaching and break down exercises into easy steps for children with processing issues.

In the past, I have competed at local level in dressage, show jumping and one day eventing. I now practice natural horsemanship at home with my own horses.
