Developing the Unison of Horse and Rider

See my Events Page for a list of my forthcoming Clinics 

Hi.  Welcome to my website.  My name is Helen Griffiths - my passion is dressage and developing the potential of horse and rider.   I am currently competing two horses, Velocity III and Don Dario at Prix St George level and am also a List 5 Judge with British Dressage.  I'm a BHS Accredited Professional Coach and have been a dressage trainer for over 20 years.  Dressage training has taken me as far afield as New Zealand, USA and Australia. As a rider and competitor myself, I understand the challenges of dressage and hence as a trainer I feel I can empathise with my pupils and offer a relaxed yet informative and instructive approach.  

I am based in Beaworthy, Devon and will travel to you but would ask that you can arrange at least 4 lessons during the day as prefer to give multiple lessons rather than charge for travel.   Please see the Rates and Reviews page for further information on arrangements and costs.


I enjoy teaching at all levels including Riding Club and Pony Club, as well as specialist dressage and event riders.  I have been the South West BYRDS Rep and believe that I have a particular ability to enable youngsters to recognise their potential and work with them to help realise that potential.  I run dressage clinics at various locations in the South of England including Bicton Arena in Devon. One of my strengths as a trainer is to assess the combination of horse and rider and to work on the combination rather than the horse or the rider.  I like to think that I can inspire and encourage hence enabling people to obtain a belief in themselves and tackle things (dressage related!) that they hadn't thought possible.

My work in equine therapy means that I have a deep knowledge of the muscles and mechanics of a horse which I can use to identify physical issues that may be hampering progress of the horse and rider combination.
