Welcome to my Website

I am a Sculptor and Horse Trainer, a student of  the Academic Art of Riding by Bent Branderup and an Enlightened Equitation Level 3, training horses using Positive Reinforcement.

A sculptor creates a work of art from an inanimate material, but the horse trainer must change a living being into a work of art.

We take in horses sometimes for full training livery at Stonehaven for short or long term – please contact me for details.

Here are some of my favourite quotes – which I try to live by when training my horses:

“If the horse is trained by force, force will be required to ride it.” – Egon von Neindorff

“Anything forced cannot be beautiful” –  Xenophon

“Ask often, be content of little, reward always” – Nuno Oliviera

“Advanced work is only ever as good as the basics.” – Egon von Neindorff

“Systems crush artistry” – Bent Branderup
