“Flora has totally transformed my riding from a pony club kid to a three star event rider. Flora’s attention to detail is second to none. I have always managed to get the best out of my horses with Flora helping me, wether it be a training session at home, warming up at an event or in competition. Most importantly she has given me the drive and ambition to work hard, strive for excellent and achieve my goals. Having trained with Flora for a number of years I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am today without her.” – Charlotte East; International 3* Rider, Advanced winner and Junior European Team Medalist.
“Flora has coached my daughter for 5 years on a number of different horses. Regardless of the talent and experience of the horses every lesson has been innovative, supportive and stimulating. At the end of every session we have left feeling both rider and horse have improved and constructively moved forward with their training. Flora takes a genuine interest in her pupils and makes herself available to talk through issues and celebrate successes regardless of how busy she is . Flora is a terrific coach on the flat, show jumping and for cross country. She is very technical but explains everything clearly. Flora is very positive and affirming which translates to a very motivated and happy pupil. I cannot speak highly enough of Flora, her energy, knowledge and kindness makes her a valuable asset to any combination.” – Claire Hetherington, former 4* rider, DC of Garth South Pony Club.
“Flora has taught me for many years now on a number of horses. I always come away from a lesson with her having felt like I have learnt lots and improved both myself and my horse. Flora’s teaching style is technical and analytical which is invaluable when trying to improve your riding. She has taught me so much about how any movement by me can influence my horses way of going and technique both on the flat and over fences, always providing constructive advice to get the best out of every horse. She is truly excellent at both building confidence and challenging her pupils and genuinely cares about imparting her expertise to other riders. I cannot thank Flora enough for all the help she has given me over the years and look forward to continuing to learn from her in the future.” – Becky, Grassroots competitor
