visiting coaches and clinics

Visiting Coaches & Clinics

We hold lots of clinics which coincide with our competitions in Show Jumping and Arena XC.  These clinic dates and times can be found on our Events & Forms page (link below).   These are taken by our onsite coaches, Steph Buchanan, Paul Warwick or Holly Laurence.

Visiting Instructors

The RAC Saddle Club is proud to have many experienced visiting instructors.

Robert Pickles

Robert visits once a month (private 45-minute lesson, or semi private/2 people). He has had a long and successful career as a rider, trainer, coach, BHS examiner, NVQ Assessor, and judge. His current clientèle range from the ages of 7 to 70 and he coaches riders from Pony Club to Grand Prix. He is as happy to get a hairy cob moving forwards and freely as he is to get an advanced dressage horse to perfect its Freestyle Test and enjoys teaching riders to jump as much as he enjoys inspiring their flatwork.
