Horse Training and Bitless Riding

Do you want to learn how to do reward-based training with your horse without making potentially dangerous or unhealthy mistakes?

Perhaps you want to safely introduce your horse to a bitless bridle?

Maybe you need me to train your horse for you?

I can help you with all of these things.


I have been helping horse people like you begin using reward based, positive reinforcement training, including clicker training with horses for nearly two decades. I have also been riding bitless for just as long and have also helped many riders safely introduce bitless bridles to their horses. If this is what you are looking for then I can offer you 1-2-1 lessons at your home or yard, as little or often as you like. I am also available for clinics and workshops so do get in touch if you would like to organise such an event for your yard or riding club. I travel across South and West Wales to provide this service and I'm also willing to travel further afield to share the my expertise with you.

***Try before you buy***

Come and visit me and my horses and I can show you how to use positive reinforcement in your training as well as demonstrate how bitless bridles work

Sometimes it’s not always possible to train your own horse and so I also offer horse training: from foal, through to backing and riding away, and also to assist with behavioural problems (although in that case you will need a veterinary referral and behavioural consultation first).


The key thing is I visit the horse in their own home to train them, saving them the stress of moving away, even temporarily to another yard. This does mean that I can only offer this service on Gower. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
