A bit about Lisa...

International Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer, having won titles at International and National level and competed each of the last 14 years at the Nationals.

Lisa's been riding from the age of 2 and was successful in the showing arena until taking up dressage at the age of 17 when she became apprenticed to 3 times Olympic dressage rider Jook Hall - the first woman ever to be trained at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna.

5 years under her eagle eye gave Lisa the foundation in classical dressage training which has stood her in great stead ever since.

Lisa's also had regular training from Kalman de Jurenak - one of the 'golden greats' of classical dressage and trainer of the Verden auction riders for many years for the Hannovarian Verband.

She spent time training in Germany, including preparing stallions for the licensing at Verden, with Hannes Baumgart.

After winning 2 young horse championships on Hofnar Navarone she went on to train with Conrad Schumacher through the Olympic Potential Basic Squad - the for-runner to the Equine pathway.

When she started riding Nemo III Lisa had the opportunity to train with Carl Hester - arguably the UK's greatest dressage rider and trainer. Carl has been working with her for the last 12 years, and has been instrumental in her achievements.

Lisa is also Paraympic Coach who trains Rio Triple Gold Medalist Natasha Baker MBE.
