My Teaching Aims are:

  • Improving riders positions & balance, using the Franklin Method, this helps the rider to be more effective, enabling your horse to work with you

  • Getting horse and rider ready for the competition season, including goal setting and helping novice riders get started
  • Dressage Test Riding Clinics for those doing pure dressage, to those doing eventing. Have a go at riding a higher level before going out to a real compeititon. Getting top tips from the judges eye and knowing what to go away and work on.

  • We are occasionally available to come out and school horses on site at owners yards, we can also come to exercise & compete horses on owners behalf

Franklin Ball Method / Clinics

The Franklin Ball method is taking the equestrian world by storm. It helps the rider to use trigger words to improve posture, softer hands & improving lower leg effectivness. It also helps to deapen the riders seat therefore enabling the horse to work more freely over its back and from behind. The riders that Karen has trained are amazed at how much improvement is made after just one sesson. You just need to see from her testimonials of what her clients say.

  • Sessions can be private or in small groups of three
  • Happy to travel around the country to do clinics at livery yards or riding clubs/pony clubs etc
  • Just look at the riders that Karen has taught, to see their amazing positions and how many of them are now gaining top results
  • Working with riders from nervous novice to advanced level competitors
