Our Cannock Chase horse riding facilities provide the very best in bio-mechanics coaching in Stafford, Stoke and the West Midlands.
Our yard is situated at the edge of Cannock Chase, and is bordered to the west by beautiful parkland. We have two lovely all-weather arenas and a grass jumping paddock.
Behind the success of The Dressage Secret is a small but dedicated team, each one contributes to the high standard of professional service we give our clients.
We have beautifully trained horses to suit all rider levels from novice riders wanting to improve their position to advanced riders wanting to work on their lateral work.
Keep up to date with all of the the upcoming events. We hold regular group lessons for all abilities, clinics, courses and shows at The Dressage Secret Training Centre.
We have a range of dressage schoolmasters and school horses to teach you on or you can bring your own along. You can come for a single lesson, book a series of lessons, or have an overnight stay if you are travelling a long way and have two or more lessons back to back.
Don't forget our intensive horse riding and dressage courses too, packed with great lessons, workshops and video feedback.
We offer private horse riding lessons for all abilities, from complete beginner to advanced competition riders.
We hold regular group lessons for all abilities and disciplines, from those just off the lead rein up to Elementary level dressage, also polework and jumping for all abilities.
Attending an intensive course offers the rider a fantastic opportunity to do some intensive learning, surrounded by like-minded people!
Here at TDS, we have a fairly unique take on coaching. Proprietor and Senior Coach, Denise, is one of only two people worldwide to hold the Level 3 ‘Ride With Your Mind’ qualification, having trained extensively in biomechanics with Mary Wanless for nearly 30 years. Associate Coach, Nikki Birt, has also trained with Mary for the last 4 years.
It means that there is always a strong element of biomechanics, examining exactly how each rider affects their horse and vice – versa, plus many strategies to develop each horse and rider combination along correct and ethical lines of training, whatever your chosen discipline, current ability or type of horse.
Our coaching is centered around your own personal goals. Whatever they are and wherever you want to aim, there is a Dressage Secret that we can share with you.
