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.”

It has been a busy few days for Elizabeth Allen at Wellington Riding for the Winter Regional Championship this week!

On Monday, Liza’s own 6yo mare Myla competed in the Novice Gold class, a few costly spooks at the upturned flower pots (thanks to the wind) dropped the marks, but in between there were plenty of 7.5’s and 8’s where she showed the work she is capable off!

Harry was 5th in a huge PSG class on 67.5% whilst Frankie was a little flat. On the Tuesday I the Inter 1, Frankie’s way of going was much improved - some expensive mistakes dropped the marks but he still scored 65%.

However it was a super 3rd place for Harry on 69.8%! 🥳

Next stop was up to Judy Harvey’s for a training day yesterday with the F&I Association (A group for those that hold their BHS I and Fellowship’s) where all 3 horses went fantastically receiving plenty of positive feedback - from many list 1 judges that were also there!

It’s been a busy week for our riders!

Liza has enjoyed plenty of success with two trips to Mendip Plains Equestrian Centre. Jessica Clare’s Austin has had 2 wins and 2 seconds with scores up to 68% earning him his Summer Elementary Regional Qualification. With her own 6yo mare Myla, they stepped up to Elementary level coming home with scores up to 66% and 2 seconds and 2 thirds!

Bernard Mealing’s Indie stepped up to Medium and Advanced Medium level very easily - winning all 4 classes overall with scores up to 69% and completing her Medium Regional Qualification!

Thanks to the team at South West Equine Water Treadmill for helping Indie & Myla become so much stronger this winter!

Alison Staples and Kiwi from Jersey enjoyed a win at Mendip plains yesterday too in their medium class having based themselves with us for a month!

Lvi Robertson scored a fabulous 67% in her Advanced test at Kings Sedgemoor Equestrian Centre enabling them to step up to PSG!

Aimee Swinton-clark jumped a super double clear at Prestige in their Discovery class!

Darcy Johnson & Natasha Wren have had successful XC schooling trips ahead of their upcoming events!

Collective TeamQuest riders were back out again last weekend at Mendip plains- with Collective Dreammakers winning and Collective Daydreams closely behind in second!

Today, livery client Bonnie Drury on Ruben won her Advanced Medium class at West Wilts on a super 67%!

Well done to all involved!!
