Lindsey Dawes – BD Accredited Trainer with L3 UKCC, BD Youth Assessor, list 2 judge and Advanced rider 

Lindsey was one of only 3 coaches chosen to represent BD on the National Development Programme for Coaching Excellence (NDPCE) coaches course in 2019/20.

She enjoys working with riders to develop their potential with their horse – at whatever level from Intro to Advanced riders.  Her satisfaction comes from seeing riders and their horses develop and achieve various goals along the way.  Some times their goals are competitive but often they are also personal.

Lindsey teaches in both the indoor and outdoor arenas at Fairoak.  Lessons can be booked through BD South and West region – either on official clinics or through flexi training- and these count towards official BD training needed for Regional Team selection.

Cost £55 for private 45 minute lessons at Fairoak or £50 for liveries. Blocks of 9 lessons can be purchased for use within 120 days at £50 per lesson. Lessons cancelled on less than 24 hours notice will be charged in full.
