Based in Hampshire England, with over 30 yrs of teaching experience, and being around horses my whole life, throughout the years learnt a lot about horse psychology and behaviour. Having that special connection keeps the understanding for these beautiful animals that are our best teachers! I spent my youth competing, schooling, and backing horses. and have taught in many equestrian centres Including Quob Stables and Sparsholt College. It was a great journey of instructing, riding and training when leaving school, I left Sparsholt passing NC in Management of Horses, and gained BHS Exams. I have had the opportunity to be taught by many impressionable coaches over the years and am so grateful for all their knowledge and help. Spending many years teaching in Wales, London and the south before working at large equestrian centres Including Quob Stables and Sparsholt College. I spent 7 years at Quob Stables equestrian Centre in Hampshire before leaving the role as Chief Instructor, having passed my BHSII, Stage 5 Teach and trained for UKCC level 3, winning runner up in the Golden Spur Award 2016 for Instructors. Since then I've worked as Equine coach at Sparsholt College training the students, then to other Equine centres as senior instructor. Wanting then to start my own business as a freelance coach I now feel I have a better work, life balance as I have the pleasure of meeting great clients and their horses, which is such a reward every day to be helping them both. In 2020 I was grateful to be awarded British Horse Society Freelance Coach of the year 2020.
Jackie Gallagher BHSII+SC
I have known Jackie as a both "a people person". She goes above and beyond to find out about her riders, their strengths, fears, goals and weaknesses. She explains to the rider in depth, not only how to execute the movements, but also why and the effect this has on the horse's way of going. Jackie is effective, puts the rider at ease and enhances the horse/rider, instilling confidence and bringing out the best of their abilities. Jackie has helped me in detail with my BHS exam preparations, and has been my rock at a moments notice. She always has the time and is an endless font of equestrian knowledge. Her sense of humour and easy way is refreshing and a reminder that riding is actually supposed to be fun!! A BHS Level 3 Coach and Centre 10 Professional Coach myself, I am renowned for wanting the best for myself and my horses. Jackie is my coach and I trust her explicitly with not only my riding and coaching progression, but also that of my horses.
