Hello, welcome to my web site. I am a freelance riding instructor based in North Yorkshire. I have trained with world renowned coach and author Mary Wanless and am an accredited Ride With Your Mind Coach (RWYM).

Ride With Your Mind focuses on the biomechanics of horse and rider and aims to give you the tools you need to have a positive influence on your horse. This increases rider security, builds confidence and creates a better partnership between horse and rider. When the rider’s body, core muscles, mind and seat are organised effectively the horse responds in a positive way, lifting his back and reaching into the rein. Biomechanics coaching gives the rider the ‘how’ to make effective changes in their body.

I coach mainly in the York, Harrogate, Selby and Pocklington area however I can travel further afield for more than one client. If you are new to RWYM and interested in learning more please look at the introduction to RWYM courses that I run as they are a really good way to get started and find out what it’s all about.

I am very passionate about RWYM and attend several courses every year; ridden, theory and coaching to further my knowledge. I also run clinics and courses with Denise O’Reilly who is a senior RWYM coach and also a British Dressage coach. Denise trained her husband’s hunter all the way up to Advanced Dressage. There are further details about RWYM and these clinics and courses on this site. Please have a look around and contact me if you would like any more information.
