Before starting training with Katie I suffered from lower back pain, my balance & posture needed improvement and I needed to be stronger. I always found everything I was seeing online was unrelated to our sport so I was unsure of what I needed to do.
I had previously tried Joe Wicks 90 day plan but found again the program needed to be more personalized to me and my sport. The results of my training have meant I now have less lower back pain, am stronger in the places I need to be like my core, shoulders & glutes and I am much more aware of my body which means my posture, balance is much better and I am able to notice weaknesses in myself and the horses more.
I think most importantly Katie understands the sport so the training is focused on us as equestrian athletes which are rare but in my opinion really important. Katie is always motivating & positive and wants to help us to reach our goals and push beyond them.
My training has helped me mentally, I always finish my sessions feeling positive & ready to crack on with the horses feeling less stressed and now I feel stronger and am able to ride my horse better I feel I am doing them justice more of the time. Plus I have finally got some abs!

I've been training with Katie for just over a year now and I can quite honestly say its the first time I've stuck with any kind of fitness programme for this length of time. Following a couple of hip operations & feeling like I was just getting by with my riding I decided to do something about it.
Over the year I’ve become so much stronger and this has translated through not just into my riding but in my general strength and wellbeing. Katie’s understanding of what riders do when they are competing is a huge factor in understanding what my body needs to do when I’m playing polocrosse and then being able to tailor my programme to suit this.
For the last 10 years I’ve had membership and access to our gym at work but have hardly used it, I even had a few PT sessions via them a couple of years ago but it didn’t last long! It was hard to see the connection between some of the activities I was doing there and how it supported my riding which I think is why it didn’t last too long.
Not only has my riding improved but I’m also enjoying have far less back and hip pain then I was before as a result of becoming stronger. I’ve learnt so much more about nutrition - I’m now much more mindful of how the food I’m eating which is helping me feel better. We may all think we are riding fine and fall into the horsey mindset of ‘I’m really active because I ride every day’ but until you begin to train you won't know how much better you can be.

Passionate about living a healthy lifestyle, my mission is to educate eventing women on the importance of using a balanced nutrition & training programme to get you long term sustainable results you are able to understand that help improve your riding.
I want to help you fix your struggles or problems so that you become more confident, comfortable & ultimately more competent in your riding. Keeping training simple focusing on single limb work to help even out muscular imbalances, mobility, hip strength, core stability & glute activation all come together to build your training approach & give you results.
My true love is my horses. I specialise in female equestrian riders (whether you are a professional competitive rider or a grassroots rider just looking to have fun with your riding) to show you how being fitter & stronger can impact & improve your riding & your well being so much.
Your fitness is paramount to how you ride and can be the answer to your problems in the saddle. The ability to correct any imbalances in the saddle, strengthen your core muscles and ensure you are pain free when riding is my mission.
Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that is achievable for everyone, all it takes is a little consistency & hard work.
