Margaret has been riding and teaching riding from an early age, she set up her own riding school and BHS examination centre after returning to the UK after 10 years working abroad.   She then moved to Hartpury College for three years before becoming the Director of Standards at the British Horse Society. Margaret started work for Haddon Training in 2014 as the Lead Assessor for BHS qualifications and has written and co-authored several horse-related books during that time.  She is a BHSI and has an MA and BA (Hons) in education and a Cert. Ed.

Margaret has both competed and produced her own horses to PSG standard, and now uses all her experience to coach both riders and horses to the same standard.  She loves nothing better than spending downtime on her smallholding, looking after alpacas, chickens and bees.
