Showjump Coaching

Corinne Bracken worked for Thundry Farm for over 20 years as the professional rider and trainer. During that time Christine was Corinne’s ground person and together they developed young horses. As Corinne’s talent for riding developed she and Christine attended clinics presented by many international riders and their enthusiasm and knowledge of training increased. Corinne is a BSJA Accredited Coach, has been a sucessful Junior & Young Rider Teams Chef d’Equipe and was awarded BSJA Coach of the year 2007.

In 2007 Christine decided to gain the qualifications to recognise her own talents as a coach and has qualified as a UKCC level 3 (showjump specific) coach. Clients recognise that Christine has an ability to encourage the rider to develop their own skills, whilst providing informative instruction to help them train their horses.

Both Corinne and Christine believe that riders and horses should be confident and enjoy their sessions in order to reach their goals. This is achieved by a calm and methodical approach to your training needs. Some clients have lessons with Corinne some with Christine, some swop between the two depending on availability. We really don’t mind as we work together and our styles are compatible and of course Corinne has trained Christine for many years.

Residential Training Programmes

If you want to have an intensive training programme over a few days or base yourself with us for a bit longer then this can be arranged to suit your goals and requirements.

Dressage Training

Training is provided on a 1-2-1 basis in 45 minute sessions by Lizzie Murray. Lizzie is a great trainer for pure dressage or flatwork to improve your jumping. She is very approachable and accommodating for horses for which dressage wouldn’t be their first choice! She is Dressage Coach to the Eventing Equine Pathway and National Squad, and has been involved with some part of the training of at least 4 of the horses at the World Equestrian Games.
