Hi I’m Alice! I trained at The Talland School of Equitation gaining my BHS Stage 3 and 4. I’m a BHSII able to train people for their complete Stage 3 qualification.
Competed up to Elementary dressage and training horses to Advanced Medium and have worked with a variety of horses at all stages of their education. 
I have worked alongside para-riders to help them get the best out of their horses. 9 years of experience in the industry  have resulted a wealth of knowledge.
I train riders from lead rein all the way up to reach their personal goals. In the past I have helped various riders regain their confidence and love for horses again!

"My life changed when I met Alice. She is wise and talented beyond her years. Alice knows how to push you out of your comfort zone without you even realising it and you do it because she knows you can. I have seen Alice work with both adults and children and she just has this way about her that makes you want to work harder in your lessons. My riding skills and confidence have improved lesson upon lesson over the last 4 years and I have Alice to thank for this. "
" I started taking lessons with Alice about two years ago. I was returning to horseback riding after many years. Alice catered lessons to my skill level, and managed to turn me from an unbalanced potato into a confident amateur rider. I now own my own horse, and continue to take lessons from Alice. She is font of equestrian knowledge and I know she will always give me excellent advice. Alice has helped me in so many ways since I met her, and I honestly don't think I would have stuck it out without her. 10/10, would recommend without hesitation. "
"I have recently come back into riding after over 11 years out of the saddle following the birth of my son, and I have been incredibly lucky to have met Alice and start lessons again. After such a long time out I had built up a few bad habits and my confidence had fallen significantly, however Alice has been a big part in bringing me back and making me realise how much I have missed riding. Alice is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and knows how to bring out the best in those she teaches. I would not hesitate in recommending her. I'm now about to start the hunt for my own 4 legged forever friend, and I will again be turning to Alice for her support and guidance in this process. Thank you for everything and helping this 40 something mum feel great in the saddle again!"
"After a long journey from Germany to the Island - heavily pregnant - Alice was the one who welcomed us in our new stable home. She looked after my boy for two years at Grenaby Estate and made the exciting time of becoming a mum as a also loving horseowner as easy as it could be, as I had no doubt that he was in the best hands."
"After just a few lessons i am already noticing lasting improvements in my position. Lessons are fun and varied. Most importantly to me, Alice is very good at reading my horse and adapts exercises to keep him interested, happy and relaxed. There is a noticeable ease and willingness in his attitude to work in her lessons which makes it super enjoyable. I highly recommend Alice as an instructor."
