Our Trainers and Coaches

Lamberts Castle RC are always looking at our training options and we have a diverse number of trainers and coaches on board with us, each able to teach at all levels.  We want to support you as best we can in this area, so whether your ambitions are just to improve your flatwork so you can enjoy your horse more out hacking, have the confidence to jump your first 70 or 80cm fence or, maybe you have a burning desire to push yourself much further, we will endeavour to help with clinics with knowledgable trainers that can help you along the way.

Here you can get to know some of our more regular trainers and coaches.
