Equestrian Coach and Equine Services Australia

About Us


Colleen has been an international equestrian coach and competitor for many years.

I believe in having an open mind when training horses and riders so I have incorporated the techniques and ideas of many trainers into the methods I use. In 2009 I was invited to present a demonstration and participate in the trainer forum at the International Equitation Science Conference where delegates from 14 countries gathered to discuss ethical and sustainable approaches to horse training.

Colleen also contributes to equestrian magazines and training videos, you will find a recent series of articles in the Horse magazine
