“ One of the main aims of this platform was to try and help as many people as possible across all levels , so everything is designed to be taken away , adapted and used by everyone .”

TRAINING
As well as the videos , I ' ve included a stride table and individual distance plans , which are available as downloadable PDFs meaning you can set up the exercises yourself at home . Of course , every horse is different , so they will need to be adapted to suit , but you should have all the tools you need to set up and work through the exercises as you wish .
Do you need to be a Grand Prix potential to be able to benefit from the training platform ?
Definitely not ! As well as covering many of the basics , the exercises you ' ll see within the platform are pretty simple - it ' s genuinely what I use at home . You can adapt all the exercises to your level , what your horse is comfortable with , and what size school or area you have . One of the main aims of this platform was to try and help as many people as possible across all levels , so everything is designed to be taken away , adapted and used by everyone .
What is your goal with this training platform ?
Ultimately it ' s designed to help people and their horses , and it ' s a way for me to be able to give back . Equestrianism and anything to do with horses means you ' re constantly learning - I still am ! Although the videos aren ' t always the smoothest because I ' m not a natural born presenter , I do hope I ' m able to get the knowledge I have so far across in a way that most people can understand and relate to . There are a few fun moments , and not everything goes perfectly , but I feel it ' s important for people to see the reality of what work needs to go into a successful partnership - rather than just the 60 seconds they see of me in the ring . Overall , if I can help improve peoples ' relationship and partnership with their horses , and inspire and help those who want to learn , then I ' ve achieved my goal . •
