Aspire Equestrian Kids Academy Coach
Hey, I'm Gemma and I'll most likely be teaching you on the Aspire Equestrian programmes if you are under the age of 13. I have worked with horses since I was 10. I started off helping out at my local riding school and then progressed to working on the yard at the weekends grooming, tacking up, mucking out etc.
I then decided I wanted to work with horses full time and qualify as a riding instructor which led me to become an apprentice at Wellington Riding. During my time there I passed my British Horse Society (BHS) stages 1,2,3 and PTT exam.
I was in charge of running the riding school for a year and then moved on to the livery yard where I was a deputy helping with the day to day duties of looking after the liveries and also providing lectures for the apprentices who were preparing to take their exams.
I have always enjoyed teaching and like to watch how my riders progress and become more confident.
In 2014 I moved back to London and currently focus on freelance teaching and helping run a livery yard in Surrey.
