James is one of the only teachers that clearly defines the elusive ‘independent seat’ and shows you exactly how to achieve it." website

Abi Hogg

"Humane handling is a central part of my work and I have a number of horses on my books who are difficult to trim or shoe. Over the years, amongst many things, I have learnt that Thoroughbreds have good feet, no horse is too big to go barefoot and that feet don't collapse when you take the shoes off. I practise non-invasive trimming, allowing the horse time to adjust and grow the hooves that it needs."
