- Always remember to visualise your test before you ride, I always go to the arena I will be competing in and try to see myself doing each movement and imagining how I will ride each movement and see myself and the horse performing it perfectly!! So having a positive mental attitude is a must!
- You can’t have straightness without suppleness. So try to think of yourself as a physio for your horse while you are warming up and make sure you ask your horse gently to flex and stretch all its muscles.
- If you have a problem with contact remember it is always linked to the hind leg.
- Remember you are talking to your horse by giving them aids for all the movements so try metaphorically not to shout, whisper or talk too fast when you ask with your legs or seat to do something.

Othello Moor – He was my first dressage horse who I owned since I was 13 years old and he was 4 year old. He took me to 6 National Championships through the levels up to Advanced Medium when I had previously only ever show jumped and gave me the passion I now have for training dressage horses and competing them
