About Jo Crouch


I developed a great love for horses at an early age and went to Bedgebury School to study for my BHSAI in 1991. After this I went on to Writtle College where I took a H.N.D. in Horse Studies. I also passed my Intermediate Instructors Exam in 2006.

While doing this I was also a very active member of the Pony Club and Riding Club competing in  Teams in various disciplines. I have also enjoyed  carriage driving and have taken part in many driving trials events.

I have always had a great love of teaching and helping people to enjoy their riding and it gives me great pleasure to watch people gain confidence with their horses and ponies

I am very happy to teach anyone with their own horse/pony whether you need help with learning a Dressage test, Gridwork jumping, jumping a round of Show Jumps or even just playing games.

As an An Accredited Profesional Coach :

  • I am covered by Public Liablilty Insurance.
  • I have current certificate in First Aid
  • I have a current certificate in Safeguarding & Protecting Children.
  • I have undergone a criminal record check.
  • I have attended regular Continual Professional Development training days.

What do I do:

I organise clinics that will build the rider’s confidence and improve their riding skills; some are taught over jumps, whilst others are on the flat.

The cost of clinic will depend on the cost of the venues so please see each date for that information.

Groups will always be sorted according to ability and my aim is to build confidence in pony/horse and rider.

Sometimes there will be a theme behind the session such as Christmas or Halloween which then gives you the opportunity to dress up and have a bit more fun!!

There is an opportunity to have drinks and cake after the clinic and to chat to your friends.

I am also available for private lessons.


I look forward to meeting you and your equine friends soon.
