The Ethos

It can’t be an accident that the vast majority of top riders have a team around them supporting their career. Horses and riders work better when they’re engaged in a routine. The combined talents of the team at Collective Equestrian mean that no matter your level we will be able to work with you to create a routine for your horse and yourself that allows you to make the most of your daily riding. Whether you choose to join us at Collective Equestrian on a full training livery package, come several times a month for some private tuition, or simply join a weekly group lesson, you’ll find that riding in an atmosphere which is at once supportive and encouraging yet also challenging and engaging improves your riding and your competitive prospects. Lastly, sport is nothing if it doesn’t change us. We believe that when we get it right riding makes us better people.

What our customers and friends say

Collective Equestrian is my horse’s home and my haven, to which I escape at the end of a working day. I love the fact that the team have taken the trouble to really get to know and understand Boris; his character and foibles. They treat him as if he were one of their own. The care lavished upon him is reflected in a settled and happy horse, which is something that gives me enormous piece of mind. For me, as for any livery owner, the standard of care is obviously the paramount consideration, but in addition to thorough and expert horse management, Collective Equestrian also boasts some really excellent facilities (20 x 60 arena with a range of jumps including skinnies and corners for simulated xc questions, walker etc - there are even some good hills for fittening and canter work). These facilitate my training and in turn help me to derive as much pleasure as possible from my riding.

I have been a livery here at Collective for over two years now with my horse Fox. I work full time so time is of the essence for me. I love the fact that I can come up to Collective early in the morning and have the first lesson with Liza first thing. I have a very large, very young dressage horse, so one of the best things for me about being here is that whenever we have a problem with our training, there is always an answer. Liza is my main trainer, but Alex has helped me out from time to time and Jonny rides Fox as well. We always feel like we’re moving forward even though he’s not the most straightforward horse to deal with. The girls take care of him after my lesson. They wash him off and he can come back into his stable, and in the meantime I am off to work and I get there on time. Some of the best things about being here are that everyone is so friendly and helpful, and always has a smile, and whatever you need, somebody will help you out with.”

Collective for the win!

Forget the World Cup. The three trainers who run Chew Magna based Collective Equestrian are all vying for the top spot at the moment, having each enjoyed success on the professional rider circuit over the last few weeks.

David Sheerin BHSI presents Elizabeth Allen with her BHS Stage 5 Performance Coach award at the 2018 British Horse Society Convention - Hartpury Arena, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom - 26 March 2018

Liza steps up to Stage 5 Performance Coach

Collective Equestrian is celebrating another coup this month, after Elizabeth (Liza) Allen was awarded her Stage 5 Performance Coach in Complete Horsemanship (formerly known as BHSI qualification) at the BHS International Convention at Hartpury.

March 2018 Update & Results

March was an exciting month for the doggles as they had their first encounter with snow (twice!), we were lucky that the horses routine wasn’t too disrupted thanks to our facilities. Even the grass canter track came into its own for team sledging activities!

🎉Congratulations 🎉 to Elizabeth Allen and Harry who WON 🥇the 7 year old Final Selection Trial at The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show yesterday on a super 71.9%! 🏆

Absolutely delighted with the judges comments in the evaluation after the test, commending his correct training as well as producing the best 4 time tempi changes of the day! We are very excited with how well he coped in an International atmosphere!

It was a fairly wet soggy show, which sadly is closed to the public however it was fantastically run considering the conditions 💦 with plenty of hard standing so that Scarlett the Scania didn’t manage to sink this time!

Thank you to Dodson & Horrell and Chloe Dix for their on going support!

So thrilled for you you really deserve this win x

Absolutely brilliant 😍

Very well done! Powered by ginger nuts? 🍪 xx

Following their success at Somerford Park Premier League Liza and Harry have been selected to compete in the 7 year old class at the prestigious Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show this week, the class is also a final selection trial for the World Young Horse Championships.

As part of their preparation Liza headed to the fantastically upgraded Burrows Court Farm on Saturday where Harry completed his Advanced Medium Regional Qualification on 68.9% with an overall win. They then went on to make Harry's Prix st George debut, winning the fairly large class overall on 68.8%!

Harry was rather a late starter, with Liza backing him less than 20 months ago - which makes this even more of an achievement! Apart from eating many ginger nut biscuits, Harry is fed on Dodson & Horrell Ultimate Balancer, as recommended by Chloe Dix - naturally a good do-er with plenty of energy this makes sure he is getting all the dietary support he needs without too many extra calories!
