Welcome to Melanie Phillips Dressage

What I love about working with horses is that you never stop learning. People and horses provide you with life lessons every day. Challenges big and small, puzzles to solve.

Every horse and every rider is different, even though the problems and solutions maybe similar.

Finding the best way forward for horses and riders, working out how to bring out the best in a partnership – from daily care to training and performance, is what I try to do and strive to learn from.

"Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, Sincere effort, and intelligent execution. It represents the wise choice of many alternatives. Choice, not chance, determines your destiny."

– Aristotle
