I have known Mandy Holloway for the past 25 years. Mandy is an accredited coach and is particularly gifted and passionate in organising all Pony Club activities but above all else has the qualities and skills to coach at the highest level within our sport.

I was fortunate to have Mandy’s support and guidance from an early age. Mandy taught me the basic scales of training through to more detailed aspects of competition riding. She has dedicated a huge amount of commitment to coaching me at competitions, often giving up hours of her own time to come and offer her valuable support and encouragement. I am certain that anyone who is fortunate enough to receive future coaching from Mandy will benefit from her wonderfully positive approach.

I met Mandy through British Eventing training days and have been fortunate enough to train with Mandy over the last couple of years. Mandy has helped me enormously with my eventing by improving my self confidence and accuracy. Mandy always takes the time to listen to any problems you have and is very keen on helping you achieve your ambitions. Mandy shows a keen interest in the development of both the horse and rider allowing great partnerships to be formed. Mandy will always end a training session ensuring that I understood everything that has been taught and together we highlight areas to work on at home using achievable aims. I owe great thanks to Mandy as training with her has enabled me to become a more successful event rider and had given me the ambition and confidence to aim to step up to 2* this coming season. As well as educating me on my horse Mandy has also increased my knowledge of the equestrian industry by including current issues in her training therefore I believe Mandy develops riders as all round! Mandys kind nature, passion for horses and determination to see her riders achieve makes training with Mandy so

I have known Mandy for almost 10 years and over that time she has dedicated a huge amount of time and effort towards improving my riding. Mandy’s expertise has helped me enormously and her precision and attention to detail has corrected many of my faults. She is an inspiration to many riders, particularly because of her admiration and love for horses, but also because of her dedication to her pupils no matter what their ability.
Mandy has also done for me two beautiful pastel portraits of my horse and dog which reflects her amazing talents and understanding of animals.
I have been incredibly lucky and am very grateful for the amount of time and effort Mandy has put into my riding.

I went to Mandy’s equestrian centre with very little confidence in my show jumping. She got me doing some exercises and soon realised what the problem was. She gave me advice and told me how to improve and by the end
of the lesson my confidence was sky high! Mandy gave me exercises to do at home which was a real help. After being eliminated show jumping in my last two events, I went out that weekend and had just a pole! Now all my show jumping demons are behind me and everything is going fab. Mandy was a huge help in achieving this.
