Karen Joynson

Instructor

Karen Joynson BHSII & UKCC L3 Coach in Dressage, Show Jumping & Eventing. I am also a Franklin Ball Specialist trainer. I have always had a passion for teaching all levels of rider, from beginner to advanced level. I have worked at Barton End for 23 years, I love to see riders progress, with emphasis on making lessons fun & informative & getting the basics right. I have been around horses for 43 years, riding in all disciplines. I have competed for British Dressage in the England squad, ridden in Show Hunters at the Horse of the Year Show. I love to work with young horses, having many years experience of breeding & training through the levels. I have coached many riders over the years, who have gone on to be elite level riders & trainers themselves. I like to use an easy to understand training method for both horse & rider, to bring out the very best.

Alastair Bull

Instructor

Growing up in Lancashire, Alastair was surrounded by horses. While working weekends as a groom for Lady Townley, he began his BHSAI training and gained experience riding and competing many quality horses. He feels fortunate to have been involved in the training of these noble animals, passing on his knowledge and seeing the satisfaction and rewards it brings.
