Competing in a wide spectrum of activities from Dressage to Polo, he has a wide knowledge of most equestrian sports and has progressed to become the holder of the International Trainers Passport. Since 1970 John has actively represented riding school development, working with the British Horse Society, the Association of British Riding Schools, the Scottish Sports Association and the British Department of Trade and Industry.
Presently, John is working with Scottish Enterprise and others, to develop equestrian tourism in Aberdeen and the Shire to advantage both Hayfield and the region generally.
In her time at Hayfield, Caroline has experienced every working role including the introduction of the website Equiworld.net, which in turn introduced the BHS and the ABRS to this (at the time) modern form of communication! Keeping her passion for riding always to the fore, Caroline turned from jumping to dressage with every horse she now owns and rides. She takes great pride in having high standards of horse care and turnout.
Working in support of reception staff, our instructors and with the development of the Hayfield Pony Club, Caroline has produced for Hayfield not only our unique progressive rider training system but ensured that our instructors have the training and guidance which enables them to develop their coaching skills. Our very able office staff can depend on Caroline’s support as they develop our new on-line record keeping system.
