Rachel Lee

Professional Coach/ BHS I

I am a friendly and experienced equine coach, who has been lucky enough to earn my living helping people build a partnership with their horses and progress. 
I have competed a wide variety of horses in dressage, show jumping but my main passion was Horse Trials.

Working horses at all levels, but normally starting with a youngster I took a couple up into Advanced and competed at  Advanced 3*.
I teach a very wide variety of people, some are working on their confidence and others are ambitious competitors who want to progress and come to me because they like to win.

All I ask from any client is that they are keen to learn.

I work as a college lecturer part time, so am happy to work with groups/individuals to help you with all aspects of equine care – exam prep or any aspect of stable management.
