Riding instructors and riding school staff

Meet Wellgrove Farm’s riding instructors and staff!

Emma has headed the riding school in Kent for over 12 years now. With a passion for dressage and tricky horses, Emma has had a number of successes recently, winning the South Eastern Regional Championships at Medium level in 2010 and going on to finish 11th in the National Championships at the same level on her talented dressage horse George.

Emma holds her Intermediate Instructor examination and, having put qualification on hold for a while to concentrate on competing, is undertaking her UKCC3 portfolio.

Emma currently has four horses in training: George at Advanced Medium, Vinny and Spider at Novice, and Aero competing at British Novice on the Show Jumping circuit.
