“I am a Portuguese riding instructor currently working in Ireland in a top class riding school! At the moment, I can safely say that I am one of the best instructors the Equestrian Centre has ever had! I teach an average of a 100 riders/weekly!!! I owe my success to the training Ihad at Contessa under the guidance and supervision of Tina Layton and her head girl Dawn Elliott, with the huge help of their star horses!!!! Contessa Riding School has a very friendly environment and it’s a lovely yard with beautiful surroundings! Being just an hour away from LONDON!!!!!!! I encourage all students to be part of the Contessa Team be it for 1 month or 1 year (I stayed for 1 and half year)! It is worth it!!!! Best of luck in your equestrian career!!!
