Tina Bennett – Freelance Coach for Horse and Rider
A professional producer of Ridden Arabian Horses with over 30 years of experience and knowledge in the backing, schooling and training of horses including Eventers, Show-jumpers, Thoroughbreds, Show Ponies and Highlands.
I have over many years started, backed and schooled numerous young horses from all breeds, but especially Arabian Horses. Some of these horses have gone on to be top class performance horses. I believe this is the most important phase in the life of a young horse and is therefore imperative that this process is a pleasant experience for the horse, done correctly, with no shortcuts.
