I know I’ve only done one clinic with Coral – but it’s by far one of the best lessons I’ve ever had. I’d be really keen to attend more clinics. Thank you!
I have really enjoyed having monthly lessons with Coral at Mendip Plains. She has a wealth of knowledge that shows in her clear and professional way of teaching. Things are made simple but effective giving us both confidence, which we definitely need lots of! She’s always interested to hear how we get on when out competing., and in turn gives great feedback on what we well, and what we can improve on for another time.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Coral. Her understanding of an indivdual horse’s way of going has helped me over the summer to achieve a better and more fluent way of jumping, and improved my understanding of speed on the xc course.
I had a great lesson with Coral last week, thought she was fab, definitely interested in training through the winter months, it will be great to have such a good instructor locally.
I started at Coral’s yard as her working pupil. I had horses of my own from a young age which I would compete but no real experience of how a professional competition yard runs. In going to Coral’s yard it was a huge learning experience and one that I am grateful for now. I learnt so much and with Coral’s high standards of care for the horses and turnout at events they were lessons that I cherish and use still now. I was given many opportunities to travel and groom at top events not only throughout the UK but also internationally. In being at Coral’s I was also able to complete an advance diploma in horse care through Haddon Training and gained my HGV licence.
After a year or so I had the opportunity of becoming her Head Girl. In my 3 years that I worked with Coral, I gained so many skills which are vital in the horse industry and enabled me with a platform to go on to other great openings.
I personally sent Coral a horse that needed a strict rehabilitation routine following a severe lameness on 3 legs. This horse following Coral’s care is now jumping 1.45 classes in International show Jumping competitions.
Coral as a person is a pleasure to work with. She is emotionally intelligent and promotes a structured happy working environment. Her knowledge allows her to educate the people around her to a very high level.
Coral had one of my youngsters to produce and compete this year. Her attention to detail was second to none and my horse was always turned out immaculately. They were placed at every event, I couldn’t have been more pleased with her results. Corals communication and regular updates and videos really keep me involved and I thoroughly enjoy having horses with her
We were recommended Coral through our equine chiropractor as we were looking for someone to do some rehabilitation for our injured racehorse. We wanted someone knowledgeable, caring and understanding to strengthen our horse up ready to go back into training. Coral is a very experienced horsewoman and this was clear from day one from sending our horse to her. She understood our concerns and got to know the horse well and what worked well for him. Within 8 weeks I could see the huge change in the horse’s frame and outline, but most importantly he had stayed sound and his legs were tight. Coral’s communication was fantastic and we could visit anytime, she kept us regularly informed via pictures and videos which was nice to receive. I’m very grateful for the work that Coral put in to get this horse ready to go back into training and would recommend her services to anybody.
“I had the pleasure of being an owner and having my horse trained and competed by Coral.
Coral did an amazing job, taking a wobbly 5 year old and giving him a fabulous education which resulted in him qualifying and competing at the BE 6 year old Championships at Osberton. Coral takes the time and care with all of her horses to ensure they are never rushed – their training and competing schedule matches each horse’s level of education which results in consistent results and a happy horse.
Without doubt I would recommend Coral – happy horses and in my case a very happy owner.”
My 3 horses were with Coral last season before she moved and always looked fantastic in her care.
Coral is a very talented rider and teacher and I was really upset to lose her at that time but I wish her good luck and much happiness for the future.
