Tina's Ex Groom, UK

“When I joined the team at Contessa my main aim was to get my BHSAI this happened quite quickly for me as I took advantage of the endless opportunities that were offered. I had lectures, teaching practice and endless riding on a daily basis not to mention regular clinics with respected professionals which I was always given time to watch or take part in. Whilst studying for my exams I found myself in charge of Tina’s three dressage horses, it was wonderful to be able to develop a bond with these beautiful horses and grooming for Tina took me to many of the major dressage competitions, which was a fantastic way to learn. I even groomed at an International CDI Competition, which was amazing!! Right from teaching little kiddies on cute ponies to riding the advanced horses I feel very privileged and lucky that I was a part of the Contessa team, and the experience has made me the Instructor and Rider that I am today”.
