Biog & More Information

'Additional to my work as a trainer in 'Showing' , I am committed to the development of a balanced relationship between horse and rider that serves to ensure that both parties have an enjoyable riding experience. Understanding the positive interaction between both horse and rider and how this can be optimised - produces startling results! In this respect the service I offer is unique! To make your riding partnership more rewarding, please contact me for an initial consultation '.

I have had a lifelong passion for horses and ponies despite not having my own until I was 14. I would muck out at the local riding stables for a 10 minute hack up the lane! When I got my first horse, Flicka, we did riding clubs, winning our first red rosette in the walk trot and lead race. With her I competed in 1 day events, dressage and show classes and over the years got better and in 1987 qualified her for the Horse of the year Show in the riding horse section.

I had a private lesson with Penny and it was amazing, hoping for another one in the future, everything you get taught is broken down into why you do it and how so you can practice at home when she isn't there!

Penny kindly agreed to come to our centre for a days training and teaching. From a yard owners point of view penny was really easy to understand. Made the why we do this so much easier and gave a reason with results to how to improve. As the owner of 4 of the horses i personally saw a huge improvement with all of ours. Very imformative , not just the do this but far more of the back ground of why we do it this way. Very very impressed, friendly, easy to approach, and made herself clear in her teaching. Fab day had and already looking forward to penny returning to us at Appleton Grange. Highly recommended. Thank you penny.

I take my hat of to anyone that gets on my 18.1hh Irish draught and makes him work hard ! Well Penny did just that ! Amazing ! She gave us lot s of things to work on and help with getting working through correctly and also some good feeding advice, I have noticed a BIG change in the shorty space of time since the clinic. We also took our coloured and got some great feedback, worked on everything she advised us to and paid off by qualifying for chaps champs ! I can't recommend her enough and hope she will be back soon to see what else we can work on. I would even consider taking both df mine the 180 mile round trip for lessons. Thank you for everything.

Attended the TSR Clinic with Penny at Thornton Lodge, Barnby Moor with my thoroughbred Flaxton. Really enjoyed the clinic and came away with lots to work on, including getting into the zone at shows. I am confident in my job and Penny talked about carrying this over into the show ring too. I felt I could go forward to my next event and hopefully do a much better job of showing off Flaxton to the Judge. Thank you so much.

My son Harrison has attended a few of Penny's clinics and he has thoroughly enjoyed them. I personally like the way she coaches youngsters she is a very clear communicator so you know what is expected of you and more so she explains how to achieve it. It's always particularly nice to hear her question the jockeys why?? So an example would be - did that feel better?? And then more importantly she wants to know why and what u did to get that result which is a very good way to teach children so it really underpins and develops their knowledge. A lovely lady who is obviously very talented and knows how to get the best from horse and rider - I would highly recommend :)
