Prestige Training offers advanced training and schoolmaster lessons for the more established rider looking to develop their knowledge and skill.
We can help you to improve your own confidence towards your training to either take home to your own horse, or bring your own horse for a training session. Our packages enable you to have both schoolmaster session and then training sessions on your own horse to help aid your learning experience.

We have some fabulous schoolmasters ranging from Novice to Grand Prix Dressage horses, Novice to 1.30m Show Jumpers and ex Intermediate Eventers. All our horses are kind and forgiving and not intimidating, they are here for your pleasure and enjoyment and love the job they do. Our Schoolmasters are proudly sponsored by Kate Negus – Bespoke British bridlework.
