Josephine believes that everyone has the ability to achieve and conquer their dreams, goals and ambitions. She is of the belief that everyone is capable of being successful at dressage and that no special or wonder horse is required! She has herself competed very successfully both in Ireland and the UK on some very “ordinary” Irish ponies and cobs with huge success. Josephine firmly believes that a strong grounding in the basics and care taken at the beginning, creates a solid basis and great future for horse and rider. Josephine’s pupils range from as young as 7 and 8 to ladies in their 60’s and beyond. She has great patience when teaching, and is always willing to help you achieve your ambitions and goals. Her pupils compete successfully in Dressage Ireland, Irish Riding Clubs, Eventing Ireland and she has coached an interschools team for the past two years. Josephine’s main focus when teaching any discipline is to ensure always that the flatwork is correct and solid, as it allows for happy and healthy horses well into their senior years and helps horses to stay fit and healthy as they progress through the grades, regardless the discipline.

Josephine teaches daily at Marlton Stud, Wicklow.
