Based in Hampshire at Winchfield Equestrian James would like to welcome you to come to his home and train.

James on Training

I am very passionate and dedicated to my training. There is nothing more satisfying than clients out winning! I stick to the scales of training and also do a lot of judging and examining which is great as it keeps me focused from the judges point of view.

My strength is the ability to create expression without adding tension. This is vital to dressage.

We have great facilities at Winchfield but I am happy to travel to teach too! I will teach anyone that wants to learn.

I currently train with Conrad Schumacher which has not only improved my riding and Smash way of going but re-focused me on correct and classical dressage training. I want to help my students understand how to communicate and build confidence with their horses. I do this by combining practical theory with basic exercises that enhance the horse’s strength and flexibility while focusing on the rider’s position and how it can be used to influence’s the horse’s movement in a positive way.
