About Trudy instructor, owner operator

I was 12yrs old when I got my 1st pony, bought for me by my lovely grandparents. Pony club, ribbon days and one day events followed.

As a adult rider ESNZ eventing is my passion, with success, fun, friendships along the way.

In 2003 I met a trainer that changed the way I train for ever, a training method that you can use on all horses and teaching the rider

* Response, Release & Repetition
* Competence = Confidence = Control

I am currently working towards a 5 year goal with my new young horse “Ruby”.

Teaching has become a way of life for me and I feel blessed to be doing this. While I use “fun” in my lessons I am sincere about progressing your child,  providing and developing a good foundation in their riding.

Keeping the groups small means that I have the time for each individual.

Having been exposed to different kinds of horsemanship means I can offer a balance of the New Zealand Pony Club system and a more progressive system.

My ponies have been hand picked for the job and all have pony club experience making them safe reliable mounts.

Let a horse whisper in your ear & breathe on your heart. You will never regret it.
