About Me


Nicola Cooper - Dressage TrainerMy interest in horses began when my parents and I moved from Bristol to Shipham when I was six. To my great excitement our house was virtually opposite a riding school where I spent every possible moment I could.

One thing led to another and after enjoying all aspects of riding, my passion for Dressage shone through. My parents very kindly bought me my first 'proper' Dressage pony when I was eleven and I've never looked back!

My Dressage career has taken me all over the world and this has only been possible with my fantastic Support Team in place.

My sights are set on more International success with all My Horses. An exciting future awaits!
