Whatever the equine....
... whoever the rider

From Irish Sports Horses to Fell ponies, Welsh ponies and cobs to TBs, plus less common breeds like Friesians, Quarter Horses and even a mule, Dawn’s extensive experience with a huge variety of horses and ponies has equipped her to help your horse or pony achieve its full potential.

Using traditional methods coupled with plenty of positive reinforcement and accurate pressure/release timing, Dawn has a track record of coaxing good performances even out of her own and her clients’ horses... sometimes doing jobs they definitely weren’t bred for!

Dawn offers a range of horse training services (except she no longer breaks in client’s youngsters) at her new base near Llanfachraeth, at at your yard or a local arena of your choice by negotiation. Livery places are rarely available, check out the Livery page for latest updates.

Dawn is a BHSAI and freelance riding instructor who teaches a full range of clients, of all ages, on their own horses/ponies.  Her teaching philosophy is based upon “doing simple things well”. Lessons can be in Welsh if requested.

Many of Dawn’s clients are leisure riders competing at riding club level, but Dawn is equally happy training the higher level rider, or the “happy hacker” who wants to get her horse more balanced and obedient. At the other end of the scale, with extensive Pony Club teaching experience, she is ever-popular with children from tots upwards, making riding lessons fun without being intimidating.

Dawn also has a following of more cautious riders, both adults and children, including those with confidence issues - she particularly enjoys working with clients whose partnership with their horse has “hit a wall”, as she finds it so satisfying to see horse and rider regain confidence in each other and get back in track.

She is available to teach clients on their own horses at her base near Llanfachraeth, or (by negotiation) at your yard or at an arena of your choice locally.
