Helen has been passionate about horses since a baby, some may say obsessed.

Her passion led her to start NWEC in 1978 having taken her BHSAI.


She is a sympathetic coach taking great delight in watching as her clients improve, always encouraging and pushing them so they achieve their full potential. Helen is particularly good with riders who have lost their confidence. Her attention to detail is second to none and she holds her old fashioned values dear. 

The horses always come first and her wealth of experience speaks for itself. Helen has worked closely  with professionals over the years earning their respect.

Helen's other love is the Haflinger Horse, as a successful breeder she has promoted the breed throughout the U.K and Europe.


She has competed successfully in showing, dressage and endurance. She regularly crews for riders and her interest in the sport led her to be asked to be Chef D'Equipe for the young rider endurance team in Italy. 

Helen also has a natural ability at equine match making having paired many riders with equine soul mates over the years. Helen is at her happiest knowing she has made people's dreams come true whether learning to ride or finding that special equine friend.
