Matt has been training our riders for 8 years. He is an established grand prix rider as well as being a successful eventer before. We love matt's techniques for getting the best out of a horse in a simple, effective way and the horses love him too!

All our riders will have monthly lessons with Matt to ensure they are constantly developing their knowledge and expertise.

Clare Gangadeen

Personal Trainer / Soft Tissue Therapist

 

We have been working with Ridercise for nearly 10 years. The rider fitness platform uses short rounds of exercise that engage and strengthen the muscles we use when we ride as well as improving posture and core strength.. This ensures that everyone who rides our horses sit balanced in the saddle, ride with an independent seat and have good control over their leg, hand and seat aids. 

This, alongside the wealth of experience that our riders have, ensures that all the horses at FDS are trained in the best possible way.
