Sophie is a qualified BHS Stage 3 coach in Complete Horsemanship and Stage 4 Coach. She began her teaching career in her teenage years working part time at a riding school whilst studying. Here she taught a wide variety of clients from 4yr olds to 70 yr olds of all abilities! When she finished her degree she began work full time as an Instructor in the equestrian department at Queen Ethelburgas School and progressed to become Assistant Yard Manager. After this Sophie worked at a sport horse sales yard and a hunt masters yard, whilst working as a freelance instructor. Sophie also taught at many local pony club rallies, camps and stable management sessions.

Sophie moved to her own yard in June 2008 and now works freelance as an Instructor. She travels out to clients own yards/livery yards, or clients without access to an arena/suitable area are welcome to visit Thorndike Lane Livery for training using the super facilities which include the arena, showjump field and dressage arena. Sophie also trains the Pony Club showjump teams who come to her yard throughout the summer for group training. Other groups are welcome to book lessons or groups could be formed if enough interest. Sophie also travels to local venues and xc courses to run clinics. All enquiries welcome whether you are looking for specific private tuition or wish to join an existing group. I'm sure we can help.
