Dressage Training with Richard Hope

Richard started his Dressage career with the late Lady Joicey and was involved with training from eminent coaches such as Christoph Hess and Stephen Clarke, and he also trained with FBHS &

List 1 judge, Tim Downes.

Richard has been described as having a ‘real talent for helping grass roots riders’ and he believes in developing a clear basic skill set in the riders he works with, and developing performance through systematic and logical progression.

Richard has produced a wide variety of young horses, many of whom have worked successfully up the levels and have gone on to have fruitful  careers with riders from both the UK and overseas.

As well as the coaches already mentioned, Richard also has help with his own horses from British Olympic Dressage rider Richard Davidson FBHS.

Richard regularly coaches at BD training clinics, but is very happy to work with horses and riders of all ages, types and levels, and enjoys helping people to ‘exceed their perceived limitations’.
