I (Lauren Rees) am originally from South Wales and have ridden since I was 3, horses were always going to be my life!
With an extensive competition history including competing in British Dressage, BSJA and in national level showing competitions, I am a confident and competent rider with experience of backing and schooling young horses, competing for clients, re-schooling race horses and working with horses with behavioural issues.
I began teaching at 14 at a local riding school, my love and passion for coaching and instructing grew from there. Whilst completing my National Diploma in Horse Care and Higher National Diploma in Equine Management at Wiltshire College - Lackham, I continued to teach, not only individual clients, but as a riding instructor for the college teaching external clients.
It was during a year out from completing my degree in 2005 that SuperGroom began. The business rapidly grew and I continued to work as a freelance instructor, rider and groom throughout my year out, my top up degree and for the year after.
My clients included riding schools, show jumpers, event riders, dressage riders, showing yards, studs, pony clubs, riding clubs as well as individual clients who required clipping, plaiting and competition grooming, plus many more!
In August 2008 I accepted a job at a reputable equine college where I worked as an equine lecturer. During this time I undertook a PGCE qualification, and am now a qualified teacher as well as a BHS AI.
Now after relocating to Hampshire in August 2011, I will be available for freelance work of any kind!
Available for freelance work in Winchester, Basingstoke, Southampton, Salisbury and other areas in Wiltshire. However, I am able to travel.
