……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. Enlightened Equitation Teacher based in Witham Friary

 Jacquie Billington  01749 850197    07773 032670

I am an accredited Enlightened Equitation teacher, having been trained by Heather Moffett to analyze and correct rider position. Heather is an internationally well known classical dressage trainer and author. I am also an agent for Heather Moffetts’ very excellent range of saddles.

 I am also studying Straightness Training with Marijke De Jong and this work compliments the Enlightened Equitation rider training very well as this is a training system designed to recognize and know how to correct the horses own asymmetry. A balanced horse needs a balanced rider – one cannot perform without the other, so it is very important to recognize and correct both the horses and the riders’ imbalances.

I charge £30 per lesson within a 5 mile radius of my yard (or teaching at my yard) near Witham friary/Upton Noble, and £35 for 5 -10 miles and will be limiting myself to roughly 10 mile radius.
