CT Coaches

A little personal coaching can make a big difference in the journey with your horse. Getting experienced feedback, advice and guidance can really help you to overcome ‘stuck’ points and progress more easily and smoothly with your horse. 

Finding the right local instructor for you can be tricky, but thanks to the internet, you can now access top quality coaches who understand how you want to work with your horse. Online coaching is simple to do (we promise!) and is a really great way to get feedback on your training and one-to-one discussion and advice with a knowledgeable coach. In fact, we find that students make the best progress with online coaching because the process of reviewing and discussing your training gives you deep awareness and insights into your training to take with you to the next session.

All of our certified Coaches have undergone at least year of training with us, both online and in person, and have all worked with a wide range of horses themselves as well as taught both in person and online through their extensive case studies and work in the field. They were selected because of their experience, knowledge and supportive, friendly personalities and we can recommend Coaching with them whole-heartedly.

Each Coach has specific experience and specialities. Please review their bio’s to find the best one for you and your horse.
You can book Coaching with them, both online and in person, by contacting them directly through their contact information below.
