Jane Bartle-Wilson trains horses and riders in dressage and eventing. While some riders come for competition training, even up to the highest level, others have non competitive goals, and are happy to learn to ride at a lower level and would still like to improve and have fun doing so. Jane is happy to train those riders too.
Jane’s competition experience started with eventing with a number of horses and then specialised in dressage. Pinocchio was her mount when riding for Great Britain in the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. Many will remember the success they had in the Freestyle to Music and winning the Silver in Toronto in 1986.
Jane helped in the training of riders for the Olympics, as well as at Badminton, Burghley and Bramham. Jane also held the position of Chef D’Equipe to the Senior British Dressage team at Olympic, World and European Championships from 1993 to 2000.
Though Jane no longer competes she still trains horse and has produced many to Grand Prix. Jane believes strongly that the training should be “horse friendly” and not at all forceful. This sympathetic approach is to help a horse to become easy to handle from the ground and when ridden. Exercises are designed to overcome fear and avoid fight in the horse.
For riders that lack experience or confidence, Jane will not pressure riders to go beyond their scope or interest As not all riders aspire to riding at a high level and are not confident in their riding ability, Jane’s lively but sympathetic approach makes these lessons both enlightening and fun.
