Welcome to


Hello and welcome to my Web Site.

I'm Andrew Bennie, an Event and Dressage rider, a coach and also a Judge. I have ridden at Four Star (Now Five star) and Olympic level Eventing and trained many horses and riders through to advanced levels in all disciplines.

My qualifications are; British Eventing Accredited Coach, FBHS, British Dressage list 1 judge and FEI International Eventing judge

I currently work from Ingestre Stables in Staffordshire having sold my own yard in Wiltshire near Cirencester.

As a rider and coach, I am always seeking harmony, confidence, and thus trust between horse and rider.
I work to encourage riders to get the very best out of their relationship with their horse, in order to help build on a good basis with thought provoking training, which in turn builds confidence, enjoyment and success. Whether a rider seeks success in the competition arena, or would prefer to develop their partnership in other ways.
I feel that coaching is a two way thing and don't teach in a way that will belittle any rider, as this gives little room for self development, I prefer to help riders learn to "feel" what their horse is "telling" them and thus develop a "thinking riding" mentality that will doubtlessly develop as a happy, confident and harmonious partnership with their horse that will give many years of fun and success. Throughout training sessions I promote a lot of rider feedback in order that they learn to think about what is happening, rather than to be given endless instructions.

If you would like to find out how I can help you to improve your own riding and horsemanship skills, progress the development of your horse and meet your training/competition goals, have a look at the following pages and please don't hesitate to contact me for any more info, or to discuss your training requirements.

I hope you enjoy my website. Let me know.
