For Keen Learners
Virtual Services

Online Courses

I understand that it can be difficult to find the right instructor, who teaches in a way

that both matches your philosophy and inspires you. That’s why I’ve developed my

proven Classical Jumping program with hundreds of students. No matter where you are in the world, you can have access to the courses and they include live coaching!

Live Video Lesson

Over Zoom and a bluetooth headset, you can have a lesson anywhere in the world! With only a slight delay, you’ll receive real-time instruction on any areas you need help. See our Services Page for details on set up. No jumping please, as this is a safety concern. However, you can schedule a call to review recorded jumping video and receive step-by-step feedback.

Video/Phone Lesson

Need input on your ride? It’s easy – schedule a phone or Zoom call and you’ll receive a critique! Just like a lesson, you’ll receive feedback, but also homework and specific exercises to work on to correct any issues. Schedule again and keep improving!


Make the right choice the first time. With decades of experience and expertise, you’ll get the feedback or assistance you need for a horse purchase, inspection of equine properties, potential broodmare assessments, horse transport for vetting, and other horse-related services.

In Person Services

Whether you’re just starting out or have been riding for years, you’ll find Classical Jumping offers you and your horse a solid foundation with years of room to grow.

Private or Group In Person Lessons

Here you’ll learn the essentials of building and developing your horse correctly without the need for a lot of extra gear, bits and equipment. The Classical Jumping program is a systematic approach that give riders and horses the skills to ride confidently and safely.

I also specialise in a wide range of areas including young horses, young riders, dressage, course design, long-reining, and working equitation.

One of the most popular and valuable services we offer!

Open Day for Private Pupils Only

Ongoing membership students can participate in safe training opportunities where small groups work together on a common goal either away or at home. For example preparing young horses for competition. Everyone works together to ensure that each student gets the most value from the experience in a non-threatening, safe way. These are safe training opportunities without the added pressure of going out “in public”.


Clinics vary throughout the year, so be sure to keep in touch. Whether you come to ride or come as a spectator, you’ll go home with lots of new tools and exercises to use at home.
