Equine Trainer and performance specialist

Gilly WheelerGilly specializes in the overall performance of horse and rider. Having spent many years training with horses and riders of all levels in a variety of disciplines, her empathy for horses is very apparent.

She believes in the "Big Picture" and that there is more to teaching than just giving a lesson. The horses well-being is of paramount importance and factors such as diet, foot balance, well fitting tack and a good stable management regime, will undoubtedly improve performance.

The riders well-being and diet is equally important and Gilly is a true believer in sports psychology and a positive mental attitude. She has helped many riders improve their performance by focusing on key words and visualization especially in the warm up arena where nerves can really take over. Setting realistic short term and long term goals to improve motivation and ensure both horse and rider optimise their full potential in their chosen discipline.
