WELCOME

Hello and welcome to the H.G. Equestrian website. I'm Hannah and I have been riding since I can remember! I showjump regularly on and off Island, and have been coaching since leaving school... so that's 18 years now.

I am a freelance riding instructor which means that I come to you. So no matter whether your horse is liveried at one of the Island's Equestrian Centres or they are at home with you, I'm available to help.

I'm not a riding school so I don't provide a horse or pony to learn on, but if you require this there are a number of riding schools on the Isle of Man and I'd be happy to recommend.

I focus on developing solid Flatwork skills as the base for progression to Showjumping, Dressage and Eventing. Naturally my passion is Showjumping so if you are looking to progress, may be make the step up to British Showjumping or beyond, then I'd love to work with you.

I coach both children and adults, teach at Isle of Man Pony Club Rally's and run numerous clinic's around the Isle of Man each year.

TESTIMONIALS

“always come away inspired”

I am really enjoying my jumping lessons with Hannah after not having had a horse to jump for a while. Super progress being made without pushing my mare too much too soon. Always come away inspired and looking forward to practicing at home! Thanks for your support and enthusiasm!

“wouldn’t have anyone else”

Wouldn't have anyone else. Hannah has brought my gelding and I on leaps and bounds in both flat and jumping, even when we had a big setback. After every lesson there is a considerable improvement and now I'm doing things and jumping heights I never thought possible before. Would recommend for any rider of any ability, Hannah can teach anyone!

“encourages and shares her knowledge in ways that makes sense”

I contacted Hannah in January 2017. My pony is young and I am not very brave. I needed a lot of help. Hannah is honest and understanding. She encourages and shares her knowledge in ways that makes sense. She has empathy when it's needed but knows how hard to push me. My world is so much bigger now. My confidence is growing and I am excited for the future with Hannah guiding and teaching me more.

“patience of a saint”

Hannah's vast experience shows through from novice green horses to experienced riders, she has the patience of a saint and always strives to improve at a pace that's right for horse and rider, offering different solutions to problems. Hannah helped me tremendously with a very young tricky horse and I would recommend her to anyone no matter what level of rider you are. Thank you Hannah.

“doing things I never dreamed of”

I have been having lessons with Hannah now for about 18 months, considering I was just a happy hacker which zero confidence doing anything else, just the thought of riding in the school terrified me and wouldn't do a trotting pole without closing my eyes!!! She has to be the most patient and caring instructor ever and has had me doing things I never dreamed of!! I have now competed at dressage and show jumping and if I ever have any issues in-between lessons or concerned about my horse in any way she literally is at the end of the phone with lots of advice. I would highly recommend Hannah to everyone.

“worked miracles with my 5 year old”

Hannah has worked miracles with my 5 year old, from pottering round off lead rein on her pony, in walk, no control, to flying round over poles and bending through cones within weeks. The kids love her, she has the patience of a saint!!
