I grew up and England and began riding at the local riding school; this is where my love affair with horses began, and I spent every minute my parents would allow there. At 11, I started backing and breaking the horses and by the time I was a teenager I was teaching. Upon leaving school I became a working student and began my British Horse Society training, which would lead me into the high level international competition world.
I worked for three years for the chief d'equipe of the British eventing team, then decided to begin my own boarding and training business. After 4 1/2 years, I wanted to expand my experience and moved to Paris, France to train and teach. In 2005 I moved to the USA
and have worked since then training and building my dressage clientele.
I met Anne Gribbons (she is my inspiration) in 2007 and have worked with her. I'm now on training up my 3rd Grand prix horse.
Louisa has spent her whole life around horses; she speaks their language. What is especially notable, though, is that Louisa is able to translate the language of the horse to her students, empowering each rider with the ability to learn from, and with, their own mount.
Louisa's diagnostic skills are spot-on; she provides 'homework' for each horse and rider to work on between their lessons together.
At LME Dressage our business is taking horses and students for dressage training and competing. Specializing in breaking and training young horses. Louisa has qualified several horses over the past few years for the National Championships. We train AA as well as juniors and young riders and riders from novice through the FEI levels.

Louisa has been training with Anne for over 5 years and takes training and guidance from Anne year round on all her horses.
