Based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, I help riders and owners build a strong relationship with their horses on the ground and into the saddle. I specialise in starting young horses including groundwork training with a young horse through to starting a horse under saddle. In addition, I can help you deal with a horse napping, rearing, bolting and horse-loading problems.

Horsemanship services available at AY Horsemanship:
We can work together to create your young horse training plan. I specialise in young stock handling, ground work for young horses and starting a horse under saddle.
Does your horse nap, rear, pull or bolt? Using horsemanship techniques, together we can work to give your horse the confidence to tackle whatever lies ahead.
Restarting a horse
Sometimes horses have had a difficult start in life or their job changes. I use horsemanship techniques to re-educate your horse to create a better relationship with you or to prepare them for their new career.
Wish going out with your horse was a breeze? Loading a young horse for the first time? I work with you to solve horse loading issues. The end result is a happy, confident horse when loading into a trailer or horsebox.
Rope halters + flags
Custom made rope halters and lead ropes for your horse. They are hand knotted using durable nylon rope. I also supply horsemanship flags, which act as great horsemanship training tools.
About my yard in Yorkshire
Based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire I have great facilities at my yard to train your horse or welcome you for horsemanship lessons. There is a round pen on site, 16 loose boxes and a large indoor arena with a sand surface. There is also safe, off-road hacking on a nearby nature reserve. Located only 15 minutes from the M1 motorway, it is easily accessible in with a trailer or horse box.
Before horses come to my yard for training they must show a negative result for strangles and be fully vaccinated against flu. I welcome owners to visit my yard before a horse comes for training. This gives us a good opportunity to sit down and establish a plan that works for you and your horse.
