Hi, I'm Vicky and I'm a BHSII and Level 4 Accredited Professional Coach. I'm an experienced stable manager and have worked for royalty, Olympians, hunt yards, studs and training centres. I currently train horses and officers for the City of London police. I also have my own horse who I'm training to be an eventer! I love teaching people and helping riders achieve their goals.

I absolutely love running Park Lane Stables! I am a Stage 4 qualified BHS instructor and have also studied Monty Roberts Intelligent Horsemanship, which uses sympathetic techniques to train horses and their humans! I'm so proud of Park Lane Stables. We might be small but we're achieving great things. We have helped hundreds of customers learn and improve their riding and now have an award-winning and very popular RDA Group!
