Vicki Macdonald. Training Advisor.
I sat on the Training Committee for twenty five years and now attend meetings as a co-opted member. The better our riders are trained the more fun they will have and the more comfortable their horses will be. As a parent, teacher, and coach with the long view and an eye on how to progress into the future I will be happy if I can help with any training issues that may arise.
