Proprietor at Knightswood Stud
“My family and I run Knightswood Stud and Equestrian Centre near Newquay in Cornwall.
I contacted Olivia in May 2014 to ask her if she would be interested in coming to our facility to teach, to our delight she said yes!!!
We where looking for someone special, who would inspire our lovely young riders here in Cornwall, well Olivia has never failed to deliver.
We are extremely proud to have Olivia as our regular clinician, her positivity is truly infectious and her "can do" approach to teaching her students has mean't that in the short space of time we have known her ALL her regulars here have gone from strength to strength, My Daughter has gone from being really nervous about competing to venturing out and winning her last 6 tests in a row!!!!! All this has been the result of Olivia's training technique, her extensive knowledge of test riding and understanding of the horse and rider ,this being way beyond her years.
Olivia has given encouragement where needed, she is firm but very fair and her students want to please her, she is respected tremendously for her knowledge, her talent and her professionalism.
She has a confident and happy demeanour and when challenged with a problem horse/pony she always has a suggestion that works for that horse and rider alike.
Olivia comes to us every month and her students get very excited to see her, she always leaves them with home work until her next visit and we are all sad when she leaves.
We hope that with Olivia's busy schedule of competing as a senior and all her other clinics that she will always find time for us (her second family!!!) here in Cornwall, we acknowledge the fact that we are extremely lucky to have someone of her calibre prepared to travel to us to deliver fantastic training which represents excellent value for money.
We have no doubt Olivia's competitive success will continue, I have truly never met anyone more focused on her goals. Totally hard working and a true role model for all our aspiring riders.
I would not hesitate in recommending Olivia to any venue that are looking for a superb Dressage trainer.”
