Lauren, the senior instructor, has been with us since 1999 apart from taking three years out to do a degree course in business and stud management. This was time well spent because, in addition to teaching here full time, she also owns and runs the ‘Connla Stud’ in East Bergholt, now one of the most successful Connemara Pony studs in the country. Lauren has superb youngstock for sale and a string of national championships to her credit as well as many wins in the dressage arena. She is also a qualified Riding for the Disabled Instructor and teaches the RDA here twice a week..
