We welcome on board Haig Equestrian as an event partner for the 2020 CoolTranz Canterbury Dressage Championships, supporting the pony preliminary and novice classes.

Lauren is one of our local Grand Prix riders and coaches, who also takes on horses for schooling, breaking and sale on behalf from her Darfield base.
With experience on a wide variety of horses, and wins and placings across all grades - Lauren is capable of effectively assessing horses and/or riders to then assist with producing them correctly alongside the scale of training to maximise their potential and achieve their goals.

With an all weather arena, specialised individual horse-safe paddocks and facilities, and also an Activo-Med therapy rug, your horse will be trained and cared for to the highest standard.

Get in touch with Lauren to arrange lessons or book a training or sales spot for your horse - booking a couple of months in advance is recommended as there is often a wait list to take on horses.
