Dovecote Stables caters for individuals wishing to improve their riding technique with the help of true, high-quality schoolmasters. Our horses are available exclusively to lease from one day to six days a week. Coaching is one-to-one with Sam Twyman, starting with lunge lessons and then progressing at a pace suited to each individual client.

Sam has thirty years teaching and competition experience. His approach combines the best classical riding principles with modern biomechanic techniques in body alignment and core stability gained from working alongside ground-breaking practitioners like Mary Wanless. His primary aim with all clients, novice to advanced, is to instill the confidence and skill to ride a horse in true self carriage through all paces and movements, making schooling and training effortless fun and providing the perfect foundation for any discipline. 

Sam's Andalusian and Friesian lease horses are carefully sourced for their temperaments, rideability and talent. From a perfect beginner's horse to a piaffing showman, Dovecote Stables can cater to all standards of rider, with horses to inspire confidence, fun and rapid improvement. Please call or email Sam to discuss your requirements.
