We have had another great year of success out competing at Dressage competitions.
Many different combinations of riders and horses have been out and it's great to see how the hard work has paid off.

We are very proud of our horses, as come the weekend they are teaching people to ride, many who have not sat on a horse before, come mid- week,  they then up their game and go out competing, usually with success. This season we also had some of our younger riders going out, coming home with 1st, 2nd and 4th. Well done to you all.

Trailblazers Championships

Tinsleys Riding School Clapham Bedfordshire I started riding at Tinsleys as a complete beginner 12 years ago. Whilst participating on the Horse Scheme I started to take part in some unaffiliated dressage competitions, which is how my love for dressage began. A couple of years later I had my own dressage horse that I kept on livery at Tinsleys. We trained hard under the watchful eye of Sue and Neil, and started to compete in British Dressage Affiliated competitions. We progressed up the dressage levels and successfully qualified and competed at 3 British Dressage Summer & Winter Regionals. I have always found Tinsleys to be a professional and welcoming yard. Sue and Neil's emphasis is always on the well-being of the horse as well as the safety of both horse and rider. Their vast knowledge and understanding of the sport means that they always get the best from you and a lot of fun is had along the way! - Jess 0 Tinsleys Riding School Clapham Bedfordshire
