VWH CAMP Dates 2018

March 15th-18th

September 23rd-26th 


 Stockland Lovell Equestrian Centre



 VWH Spring Camp 2018 will be at Stockland Lovell Equestrian Centre. We are delighted to welcome the return of Anne-Marie Taylor to instruct us, and if numbers allow a second instructor will also be booked.

Anne-Marie Taylor is an equestrian coach - a Fellow of the British Horse Society  - a Master BE Accredited Trainer - an Expert Equestrian Witness - a Dressage and Horse Trials Judge - an International FEI Judge - and a former top International Three Day Event Rider, having represented GB at World and European Championships.

Being a top rider and being a top instructor is not the same thing. Skill in one does not automatically mean skill in the other. Her combination of skills and experience as a competitor, trainer, coach and judge give her an all-round understanding and empathy with her horses and pupils.

Her 20 year competitive career informs her teaching - her competitive background and her teaching inform her Judging - and her judging informs her teaching and riding. And it all informs her Expert Witness work.








Total cost will be around £380 dependent on final numbers but we shall do our best to keep it as affordable as possible for members.  

Groups are no more than 4, and will be matched as closely as possible to horse and rider ability and aspirations - we want everyone to have fun (not to terrify you!)
