Why have you chosen to be part of Equestival?

           Equestival is a concept that I have been developing over the past three years with the sole purpose of creating a festival vibe for equestrians. Wellington Riding offers the perfect facilities to give people the opportunity to try something new, like another discipline or challenge. The non-ridden activities are also very exciting and will allow riders the chance to spend some time working on improving themselves to better understand or ride their horses.

Why have you chosen to be part of Equestival?

      I decided to get involved with Equestival as I believe it's a great opportunity for riders and horses to access the knowledge and experiences of multiple coaches from different backgrounds, whilst sharing their own experiences with other riders. As a coach it's a fantastic way to test my comfort and expertise with the support of the Equestival community

       I love to teach and work on test riding, but I was very excited for the opportunity to come back to Wellington as a Coach with such fantastic facilities! I took some of my exams here when I was younger and I was David’s competition groom for a while too, so it’s great to be back!

About

EVENTING ExPERT

Born in Hendon, London, in 1982, Kylie is a BHSI who has worked with horses since she left school at 16. She has dedicated her life to eventing and has worked very hard to achieve the successes she has had to date. In 2000 she left home to join Olympic gold medallist Leslie Law as a working pupil. She spent four hard but enjoyable years working with Leslie, during which time she produced her first horse to 3* level

Professessional Achievements

  • Producing young horses for the young horse championships; Kylie has qualified multiple horses for the 5 and 6 year old eventing championships.

  • Retraining racehorses; Kylie has enjoyed successes with Adrian and Maggie Smith’s ex racehorses, What’s it All About II and Laurentian Lad and Bronte Watson’s Acquisitor.

  • Difficult or sharp horses who need a sensitive approach. Kylie’s vast ranging experience with different types of horses’ means she is very adaptable to an individual horse and recognises that “one size” does not fit all.
