Our Coaching Methods

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.
