Welcome to The Dressage Coach - an exciting new way to access Dressage Coaching within your own timetable.
So, what is The Dressage Coach? In a nutshell, after selecting your level of membership, you'll be able to send a video of your horse with a particular issue you'd like assistance with. Videos can be up to 10 minutes in length and you'll have up to a month after payment to send your video.
Once Maddi has reviewed your video and specific issue, she'll send you feedback on her observations with a plan for you to improve within five working days.
Our monthly plans include a whole load of extras too, including the ability to send more videos for coaching help, access to training exercises with new exercises being added each month as well as Skype/Facetime sessions with Maddi.

How Can The Dressage Coach Help Me?
This brand new coaching system is designed around making coaching more accessible and allow you to focus on specific issues which you're facing whilst schooling your horse. What's more, is that it allows you to obtain advice from anywhere, without the need to have a coach there in person.
How Much Does It Cost?
A basic membership costs £10 and allows the upload of one video within a month after payment.
Our Gold Tier membership (the most popular one!) costs just £20 a month - less than half the price of a lesson - and gives you access to other coaching resources as well as the upload of two videos a month.
Who will be reviewing the videos and providing feedback?
Maddi Burchell is a highly qualified and experienced dressage coach and rider holding both a British Dressage UKCC Level 3 and British Horse Society Accredited Professional Coach qualifications. Additionally, Maddi is fully qualified in rider biomechanics. Maddi will be the only person who will review your videos and provide feedback.
Do I need a fancy camera?
Absolutely not. Modern smart phones have great cameras which are perfectly suitable for use. Once you've signed up you can check out our handy tips for getting the best quality footage across to us.
I'm not very tech-savvy, how easy is this to use?
Videos are sent to us via our secure Dropbox link. Simply click on the upload button on the members page, select your video and send. You can even do it easily from your phone or tablet. You don't even need a Dropbox account! So easy!
Is this secure?
We utilise Google Drive for transmission of files utilising a secure form. The videos are only visible to us after you've sent them and we are the only ones who can see them.
Is this helpful even though I'm already having lessons in person?
Yes absolutely! The progress you make online can really help you when it comes to one to one sessions in person.
Is there a contract period?
Nope! Our Gold and Diamond plans work on a recurring payment scheme, but you can cancel any time you like.
