Both Sam and Chris are available for lessons, both are part of the NCAS coaching system and have many years experience between them.
While both are elite eventing riders they each have a specialty. Sam, particularly enjoys teaching dressage but still loves a thoroughbred! Her focus is on rider's using their position to influence their horses and ensuring riders understand the fundamentals of dressage training.
Chris is a show jumping expert and is great at instilling confidence in horses and riders of all levels, as well as adding the polish to the more experienced horses.
Both enjoy teaching cross country and access to the facilities is of course included in your lesson price.

Each Month we run a one day clinic with the following format- two lessons, one 45 minute Dressage Lesson in pairs with Sam and one Cross Country or Showjumping Lesson in a group of 4 or less for 1.5 hours with Chris.
There is no minimum age for these clinics but riders need to be able to walk, trot and canter independently.
Booking forms for these clinics can be found HERE.
Approximately every three months we run an intensive training clinic. Modeled around elite training programs from both equestrian and other sports, these clinics run for three days and have a slightly different focus at different times of the year. We invite guests to run some sessions and riders stay on site with evening sessions most nights.
Sessions include the usual riding sessions as well as additions like dressage test riding in front of a judge, video reviews, rider and horse fitness sessions, horse turnout lessons, horse nutrition, sports psychology etc...
Places are strictly limited and riders need to be jumping 80cm to be able to participate.

Our Freshamn's Cross Country training days allow you to enjoy the set up of a cross country competition with less pressure. Chose a suitable flagged course either 65cm, 80cm, 95cm or 105cm. Walk your course, warm up and try for a clear round. Maximum of 3 rounds per combination riding across as many levels as you like.
Dressage Test Training days consist of a test and talk where you ride a dressage test of your choice in front of a qualified dressage judge and receive feedback on your riding. You then ride your test a second time for an improved outcome, hopefully!
