Rebecca Calvert is our resident coach and horse
trainer. She is a registered BHSAI Int.SM and UKCC Level 2 Coach and is in the process of gaining Level
3 in Showjumping and Eventing; the prestigious new form of coaching qualifications.
She began riding aged 2, was jumping unassisted by age
4 and started her competitive career after joining the Badsworth Hunt Pony Club aged 9 in Mounted Games; this was when
it got serious as a career! She progressed into eventing and showjumping; taking in ponies that were considered difficult
as her budget was limited and producing for her parents and owners up to JA level with 2 JA's in her string. Upon
leaving school she trained with Jane and Chris Bartle at the renowned Yorkshire Riding Centre gaining BHS qualifications and
was retained as an employee. After this Rebecca wanted to experience all aspects of the industry so travelled around the country
working with Eventers, Showjumpers, Dressage, Point to Pointers, Young horse Producers and so on; at both national and international
levels, as a head girl and schooling rider over a number of years. Her
abiltity to work young horses and her affinity with the sharper quirkier horses started to show during this period and
developed her career in the direction of starting [breaking] and producing top level youngsters, her passion!
As her career has progressed Rebecca has also become
passionate about passing her knowledge on to others and is constantly looking to gain experience and qualifications of the
highest level to enable her to benefit her pupils. She is of the "you never stop learning about horses"
school of thought!
Rebecca has a
team of young and retraining horses in competition and preparation who are aiming at national level competition, with one
or two aiming at international hopefully!
