Helping you become the best that you can be

As a BHSII Accredited Professional Senior Coach and accomplished rider, Nicky teaches riders from all levels in all three disciplines – from grass roots riding and pony club, para riders to BD and BE advanced competitors.

“Having a calm, understanding teaching style helps develop confidence and inspires growth. Calm relaxed horses learn better, and this is also true of riders. Developing trust between you and your horse is the first step to reaching your true potential. I love to see my pupils improve whether that be up the levels or just gaining confidence when riding, all of these achievements are equally important and rewarding to me as a coach.”

Meet The Team

As well as a busy teaching schedule Nicky trains and competes her own and clients horses on a regular basis.

What a busy year so far……

As well as training and competing my own horses I have been very busy teaching some lovely riders at different Camps, Riding Club & Pony Club clinics as well as private clients all over Worcestershire and the West Midlands.

My clinics have varied from flatwork, test your test, gymnastic poles, gymnastic gridwork, show jumping and cross country.

If you would like to book a clinic for your club, yard or a private session please call 07957 295304  or email nicky@nickysouthall.com to discuss your requirements.

I love getting feedback from my clients……..

“Nicky is a fantastic and truly special riding instructor. She taught me and my mum for many years when we had our horses and I can’t recommend her enough!

In just a few years she managed to get me and my novice horse to training Inter I dressage level (competing Advanced). Her training style is clear and understanding,

She’s always willing to work through problems and take the time to explain and demonstrate new techniques. I can safely say that if she can cope with years of training me then there’s nothing she can’t do!”

Don't just take our word for it....

Nicky is a fantastic instructor. Patient, motivated and above all she has experience and knowledge. It’s a wonderful moment when you hear the penny drop because a technique has finally worked and you and your horse are one step closer to yet another dressage goal – no matter how small. Can’t recommend Nicky enough.

Nicky is a superb instructor. Her style of coaching is clear, concise and always well structured. She sets goals and puts plans in place to help both you and your horse to achieve them. Nicky is confident and persistent, which guarantees her clients success in all they set out to do. Best of all, Nicky invests time in her own riding, training with the very best, which of course means that her clients undoubtedly benefit. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Nicky.

Can’t recommend Nicky enough, she’s simply the best! My riding wouldn’t be the way it is today without her, and I’ve learnt so much along the way!
