RACHAEL ATKINSON , Lancashire
Have you ever wanted to ask someone a question about endurance and not known who to approach? Well here is your chance, if I don't know the answer I will endeavour to find out for you. The coaches are here to help anyone within the endurance community.

I've spent a large part of my life teaching all ages and abilities to ride. Now I have the opportunity to combine that knowledge with all that I enjoy about endurance and hopefully enthuse many more competitors. Everyone can have a go at endurance at some level if they have access to a horse. I see my job as encouraging and providing help and support to anyone that wants to start, or perhaps move to the next level of competition. Please feel free to call me or email any time. hydrohorseatreadwood@googlemail.com

 

ROSEMARY ATTFIELD, West Sussex
I am a qualified riding instructor and level three equine coach specialising in endurance. Currently I teach the Chiddingford pony club regularly. In the past I have taught the Lord Leconfield an Crawley and Horsham pony clubs. I teach every evening at Hornshill. I have bred, trained and ridden successfully internationally and nationally for endurance, eventing and show jumping plus breeding and producing show and working hunter ponies.

I am a four star international endurance judge, technical delegate and chief steward and have judged in Europe, Scandinavia and America. I have also crewed at championship level all over the world. I was Assistant Chef for endurance at the first equestrian games in Stockholm 1990 where we won team gold and individual silver. I have taught and trained successfully juniors and Young riders internationally and nationally for the past thirty years in eventing, show jumping and endurance. Two successful, now senior, Young riders I have taught and mentored for the past ten or more years are Fiona Hamilton and Ali Beet who have both represented Endurance GB very successfully and I feel sure need no introduction to you.

JULIE MARTIN, Yorkshire
I have over 45 years of experience of owning, breeding, training, and competing horses, as well as introducing many people to the sport and mentoring them through the levels.  I was proprietor of a riding school and livery yard for many years during which time I encountered many different horses and riders with a wide variety of problems leading me to investigate many different styles of horsemanship.  I am still competing having just brought my current horse through from Novice level to Advanced.

I have over 35 years’ experience in the sport of Endurance Riding beginning with the British Horse Society Long Distance Riding Group, followed by The Endurance Horse and Pony Society and also SERC leading into Endurance GB. I have competed at all levels and on many horses, my own and also those belonging to other people.  I have also ridden and crewed at International rides.

I love to see people enjoying their horses and getting the best from them.
