Emily Gilruth: “Ruth’s training has improved every part of my test. This has given me the confidence to achieve better results in the arena.”
Michael Owen: “Since training with Ruth my dressage scores have improved significantly with all my horses. Her attention to detail is second to none and she very quickly found the key to all my horses to maximise their performance. Highly recommended!”
Nicola Claxton: “Ruth is a fantastic trainer and always gives 100% to every lesson. When I began training with her I was at a really low ebb having lost confidence due to a difficult horse, and had been unable to progress beyond medium level. Having to retire from the regionals was almost the last straw, which is when I started training with Ruth.
“Ruth has the ability to read horses and riders perfectly, she pushes just enough and is a confidence giver whatever the level. She has a vast depth of technical knowledge and can always find a way forward.
“Whilst training with Ruth I have won at Somerford Premier League and been placed at the regionals numerous times on three different horses. My scores have increased from low 60’s to above 70% and the difficult horse has just done his first PSG, thanks to Ruth!”
Charlotte Morten: “Thanks to Ruth’s patience, in depth knowledge and attention to detail, I have re discovered my love of dressage! My BE & BD scores have improved dramatically since receiving help from Ruth, both on the flat and over fences. Riding ex-racehorses, I accepted I couldn’t really do a competitive dressage test, but with Ruth’s help I’m no longer at the character building end of the scoreboard after dressage.
“I find Ruth’s advice is invaluable, each lesson builds on the last. All the instructions are simple, with an explanation of the aim and the reason for using a specific exercise. At competitions, even when she’s riding herself, Ruth is generous with words of encouragement and advice. Training with Ruth is both fun, informative & highly recommend!”
