From apprenticeships to life changing opportunities.

Haddon Learner, Beau Williams gained a distinction in her Level 2 Apprenticeship and is now enrolled on the AASE course. Read what she has to say about the exciting experiences and opportunities her apprenticeship has created.

“I left school at 16 after I did my GCSE’s and immediately wanted to start working with horses but was confused on where to start. A friend suggested I did an apprenticeship which led me to finding Haddon Training.

My family and I didn’t know much about apprenticeships and didn’t know what course to do. Haddon Training from the beginning have guided me through the process and have made the experience very relaxing and enjoyable.

Doing an apprenticeship through Haddon Training has allowed me to start in the dressage industry and given me the opportunity to work at Exfold Farm with International dressage rider Daniel Timson. Working for Daniel has already given me a lot of new experiences as well as tons of life changing opportunities which I am extremely grateful for.

Throughout doing my Level 1 and Level 2 the monthly check-ups have been exceedingly helpful and have helped keep me organised and on track.

My Trainer-Coach; Natalie has helped me huge amounts and the whole of Haddon’s team is so friendly and their passion shines through. I got a distinction in my final exam and I have just enrolled in doing the ASSE programme which I am incredibly excited about.

The camps are amazing, getting training sessions with top dressage riders and learning about how to become a great athlete both physically and mentally as well as informative talks with knowledgeable nutritionists, physios etc.

After I have completed the AASE course, I am definitely planning on doing my Level 3. Haddon Training have already opened up so many opportunities for me and have allowed me to focus on my dressage career which has given me the chance to train with Daniel every day and compete more regularly.

My horse Electro SK and I have achieved two scores of over 67.5% at advanced medium to qualify for the test riding day and we are hoping to get selected for Juniors in 2020.

Without Haddon training and their team, I wouldn’t be able to do what I am doing now and I am excited about continuing my equestrian journey with them.”
