Hi, I am Lyla and I believe that success with horses comes from understanding and

I specialise in providing a unique blend of natural horsemanship principles alongside
sensitively applied traditional ground and ridden techniques for riders of any discipline to
achieve transformational results with their horses.

Horses are happier and will respond better to training (in any sphere) when they
understand your expectations and you understand theirs.

I came from a traditional horsey background. Early on I developed a love of Dressage,
schooling and understanding how to train horses. This led me to study Natural
Horsemanship, Horse and Rider Behaviour for 3 years at home in the UK and 2 years in
the US. I have been teaching for over 15 years.

My teaching brings together everything I have learnt from Natural Horsemanship,
Dressage and a lifetime spent with horses.
