About Claire

 

Classical riding instructor, Claire Lilley, has been teaching riders and their horses for over 40 years.  She trained in Germany as a Bereiter, and has brought on young horses to top level in dressage and show jumping over the years, and today trains and competes her own horses.

Claire has developed an extremely good eye when it comes to improving the smallest technical detail. She will help you to pinpoint fine details in your riding that can really make a huge difference in developing a true partnership with your horse – the only way to progress and to achieve your goals.
