Guest Trainers and Clinics

Daniel Sherriff

Daniel Sherriff was a keen member of the Enfield Chace Pony Club where he took part in all equestrian activities including mounted games, polo, eventing, show jumping and dressage.  The Pony Club encouraged him to undertake the Pony Club Exams where he achieved his A-Test with honours in 1986, a feat that few have achieved even to this day. He also won the British Dressage Talent Spotting in the same year; this helped Dan decide that horses and dressage, rather than farming, would be his chosen career. He has trained all of his horses from babies to Grand Prix which has earned him much respect from his peers. Dan has recently been appointed GB pony progress squad trainer.

John Adams

John Started his training with Brian Young before going to train and ride in Germany. He has produced many horses from Novice to Grade A and coaches riders of all Calibres. He is popular with many Pony Clubs  and we are very fortunate to have him for a monthly clinic. He is a hugely experienced instructor who instils good training habits that stay with his pupils through out their equestrian careers.Emily Lachore  4* eventer has represented Great Britain at Junior and Young Rider level and still draws on her lessons with John  Adams.


 Tina Ure

Owner of Little Downham Eventing Centre Tina is a British Eventing Accredited Coach, UKCC level 3 ( Eventing Specific) and BE Eastern region U18 Coach. She is also a B tester for Area 8. Her arena based cross country sessions are hugely beneficial in preparing horse and rider for the technicalities they may meet on the cross country. Clinics held at Little Downham benefit from the lovely going that the peaty soil offers year round as well as the fabulous range of fences and 2 exciting water complexes.

He has competed at Badminton, Burghley, Bramham and Blenheim 3-Day Events as well as many others both in the UK and internationally. The majority of this has been achieved on horses that joined Nick as novices.
