Up and coming young Dressage rider based in the South East, competing at National and International level.
"I first started riding when I was 7 and was lucky enough to get a pony on loan when I was 12. I very soon discovered the dressage bug as the pony had a habit of taking all jumps at a flat out gallop! Over the years I have been very lucky to have some amazing horses and my current horse is Vinnie (Vincente) owned by Coral Ingham.
Together we have progressed from advanced medium through to Grand Prix – It hasn’t been easy but through the help of Elisabeth, we have managed to improve his straightness through the changes and significantly improved his suppleness in the canter pirouettes. We are just about to make our international debut at U25’s Grand Prix.
From the first treatment, Elisabeth sussed Vinnie out straight away and I was so impressed with the level of care and attention she gave to him. He has benefited so much from her treatments and can’t wait to see where the future takes us!"
An ambitious and dedicated Showjumper, competing at local, national and international shows with an exciting string of horses.
“I learnt to ride in Egypt at the age of 6, when after school, I would ride around the Pyramids and this is definitely where I discovered my love for horses and riding. Having competed in all the various Pony Club activties back in the UK, it then wasn't until I finished my degree at Reading University that I was able to purchase a horse and compete again. Upon buying a horse (Temmie) from the internet to 'just have some fun on', it didn't take long for us both to realise we loved show jumping.
In 2009 I had an opportunity to train with Robert Smith for a few days and he quickly gave me the confidence and belief to try and make show jumping a career rather than a hobby. In January 2010 leaving my job as a water engineer my husband and I and all the horses moved to the Netherlands to train full time with Robert. Now back in England full-time, I am continuing to compete across UK & Europe at leading shows.
Swann Equine Osteopathy have kindly agreed to sponsor my horse Billy Umbongo. He is a 11 year old stunning chestnut gelding by Billy Congo, that I have owned for just over a year now. He is expressive and flashy over a fence and we are aiming to jump some 1.40 tracks along with some 1* Grand prixs this year. I am really looking forward to working with Elisabeth who will also be treating my other horses as well as Umbongo.”
Showjumper and owner of Team Manhatten Equestrian, running a successful training livery yard with a lovely string of horses.
Ambitious and aspiring event rider based in Surrey. Owner of Banfield Equestrian, organising equestrian events in the South East and running a successful Livery yard.
Coming from a background with absolutely no equestrian experience it's been incredibly hard to get started but thanks to Elisabeth's support and treatments we never have to stop training.
After finishing exams at school I decided to set up a livery yard to fund a career in eventing. 2018 has been a year of achievements - in lots of ways and we will be aiming for our first internationals and three days next season.
Thanks to the amazing support from Elisabeth, it has ensured my horse (Jordan) is always feeling at her best. It may be coincidence that Jordan's bolting stopped when we met Elisabeth, but I think not.
