It was great to hear you teach again the other day, I only wish I could have sat in and listened for longer!

Zoe is very keen to get some more coaching from you, she has said her main aim for this year is to win the Junior Pony Club Tet finals....this will involve 10m turning targets on to a pony club style target. However, she is keen to work on the combined event technique as well, she loved your teaching."
