Hello and welcome to my Web Site.

I'm Andrew Bennie, an Event and Dressage rider, a coach and also a Dressage and Eventing Judge. I have ridden at Four Star and Olympic level Eventing and trained many horses and riders through to advanced levels in all disciplines, I have judged at Four star level Eventing and also Rio Olympics, and have been Team Coach for the Hong Kong Paralympic team up to and including Rio Para Games.

My qualifications are; British Eventing Accredited Coach, BHSI Accredited Professional Coach, British Dressage list 1 judge and FEI International Eventing and Olympic judge.

I currently work from my base Ingestre Stables in Staffordshire.

As a rider and coach, I am always seeking harmony, confidence, and thus trust between horse and rider.
I work to encourage riders to get the very best out of their relationship with their horse, in order to help build on a good basis with thought provoking training, which in turn builds confidence, enjoyment and success. Whether a rider seeks success in the competition arena, or would prefer to develop their partnership in other ways.
I feel that coaching is a two way thing and don't teach in a way that will belittle any rider, as this gives little room for self development, I prefer to help riders learn to "feel" what their horse is "telling" them and thus develop a "thinking riding" mentality that will doubtlessly develop as a happy, confident and harmonious partnership with their horse that will give many years of fun and success. Throughout training sessions I promote a lot of rider feedback in order that they learn to think about what is happening, rather than to be given endless instructions.

Should you like to find out how I can help you to improve your own riding and horsemanship skills, progress the development of your horse and meet your training/competition goals, have a look at the following pages and please don't hesitate to contact me for any more info, or to discuss your training requirements.

I hope you enjoy my website. Let me know.
