I cannot recommend Rebecca highly enough. I have been having lessons with her for the last year and she has worked wonders for my confidence and trust in my own ability. She has a wondeful manner and teaching style which really brings out the best. I have ridden for over 20 years and with Rebecca's help I feel I have really reached my peak so far and know that will only keep improving. I now feel able to take what she has taught me and apply it in practice outside of my lessons and adapt how I ride to suit a range of horses. Rebecca is also fabulous at correcting your position and encouraging you to think about how that affects your performance with your horse.

Friendly, positive and precise instruction. Very pleased with the progress that my horse and I have made in our lessons and I have come home with useful new exercises to try each time. Will definitely be a regular at Rebecca's dressage clinics.

Had my first lesson with Rebecca on Saturday, I am a very nervous yet capable rider! Rebecca knew this straight away and asked me to do things I've never done and suprised myself with what I could do! I felt comfortable and safe yet feel I learnt different things to do with my horse in the mean time! Can't wait to book my next!!

I have had Becky as an instructor for the past year and a half at Long Lane Equestrian. I started with almost no knowledge of horse riding and since then I have learnt so much and gained so much confidence! She has been a great teacher and knows just how much to push me to keep me improving. She makes lessons enjoyable and comfortable and I have learnt a lot from her!

I started having weekly lessons with Becky around six weeks ago. I had never ridden a horse before, but was recommended Becky by a friend of mine. Becky has unparalleled communication skills, and is able to communicate faults that I make in a very clear, but friendly way. From my very first lesson it was clear she was extremely knowledgeable about equestrian sport and I have felt my ability move in leaps and bounds. For someone of no ability, to someone with an experienced riding background you would be hard pressed to find someone as good as Becky 10/10!

I started having weekly private lessons with Becky just over a year ago. Prior to this, I had only experienced recreational group lessons which did not challenge my technical ability and had left me with several bad riding habits. From my very first lesson with Becky, it was clear that her knowledge was extensive and she has really made me appreciate the complexity of equestrian sport. Her communication skills are unparalleled as she communicates her suggestions for improvement in a clear and relaxed manner that really put me at ease while constantly challenging me. I can feel the improvements in my skill after each lesson and cannot begin to describe how far I feel that I have come over the past year. Could not recommend anyone more!

Beccy is the instructor at Long Lane Equestrian who organises the Pony Club Centre activities. Beccy entered a team for the Pony Club Championships 2014 and my daughter (age 10) was selected for the team. The training was excellent and the result was that the team came 9th overall - a great result. More importantly the children who were not chosen for the team but attended all the training came to groom and support - they were very much made to feel part of the overall team's success - a credit to Beccy. Also on the day , Beccy kept the team really calm, boosted their confidence and made sure they all had an enjoyable day. I hope Beccy decides to enter a team next year as there will be lots of keen riders hoping to take part.

Highly recommend Becky, in just a short time she has really helped my partnership with my young horse and I am exceptionally pleased with the way he has begun to work. Becky has a patient and understanding manner which I find comforting as I sometimes lack confidence myself; she sets challenging but achievable goals in lessons. She has an excellent knowledge of exercises for both horse and rider and I always end my lesson with a huge smile on my face!

Rebecca is a very professional and friendly instructor, who makes you feel at ease but also pushes you to achieve the best out of a lesson with her. She uses a range of techniques and exercises which she builds up in stages and adapts based on the way you and your horse are working that day. I throughly enjoy the lessons I have with her and always look forward to the next one .
