Kathy Willard

I started riding when I was 4 years old and was a member of Crawley and Horsham South Pony Club. I learnt so much in the pony club and made great friends. I then found the love for showjumping and teaching. I have produced several horses from unbroken 3 year olds to jump 1.30 and above. I have jump at HOYS and qualified for the young riders at Olympia. I have won and been placed at all the big venues in the country and won the 5 year old (horse) national final. I have been teaching pony club for the past 15 years and am a UKCC level 2 coach. I am on the main pony club website as a recommended coach allowing me the opportunity to teach across the whole country. I help coach the Southdown Hunt West open showjumping team to great success qualifying and getting placed at the national finals 2015.

Sarah Young UKCC L2 BHS Accredited Professional Coach.

I was lucky enough to grow up around horses and upon completing my A levels spent time working in racing.

I was a keen member of the Pony Club and stayed on as an associate member. My equestrian competition background is predominantly in Eventing, and I currently have my own yard in Sussex.   I teach all levels of riding for the PC and also privately. I have a keen interest in the Pony Club test training system in both the ridden and stable management components.

Jess has competed up to Advanced level Eventing and 1.35m Level Show Jumping on a self produced horse whilst also producing youngsters. She loves coaching other riders to help them to work towards and achieve their goals.

Having been born into a “horsey” background I suppose you could say riding is in my blood; with a Grandad who had a million horses and was also a blacksmith, he was my main inspiration. I started riding from a very young age (thanks to my grandparents who bought my first pony), I started out in the show ring. At about the age of 10 or 11 I had a very whizzy pony who was so much fun and here is where I found my love for showjumping. I have competed nationally up to 1.25/1.30m but have now chosen to focus more time in backing and producing youngsters. I currently have two horses; Peach Blossom UK who is now 7 but I have produced her since a just backed 4 year old and we are currently competing at newcomer/foxhunter level. And Miss Mole UK who is rising 5 but I have backed & produced her myself and currently competing at Novice/discovery. My aim is to continue with both of my horses and keep jumping up the levels with them.

I have a HUGE passion for teaching and think there is nothing better than seeing your students progress and achieve their goals. I was an active member of PC myself and am delighted to be involved again within the teaching side. As well as running my own private livery yard, I also teach at 5 other pony clubs and teach a lot freelance. I am working towards my BHS AI (hopefully won’t be long) and I would like to keep progressing and gaining more teaching qualifications.

Angela Whitehead – BHS – Senior Coach in Complete Horsemanship

I am a sympathetic, confidence giving instructor with many years of experience. I enjoy encouraging an understanding relationship both mentally and physically between horse and rider. I specialise in Show Jumping as it has been my passion since I was 7 years old. I have also enjoyed competing on the Eventing circuit and County level showing. I train horses and riders of all ages and thrive above helping them achieve their goals.
