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!

Imogen Murray rode fantastically through it and the horse just did it's job like a trooper. So impressed with how on the aids the horse must be to deliver a test like that despite the distraction!

Daniel Hammond

Why didn't she just stop the 2nd time as the horse came to her. I would of tried to catch it for someone on the ground to take. Have to say her horse was amazing 😊

Imogen Murray

Not many horses would be so unaware of their surroundings to just carry on regardless.
