Welcome to
All Your Equestrian Needs

Katie Bailey

My name is Katie Bailey and I am a locally based freelance professional rider. I have over 10 years’ experience working with some of the top riders and horses in the world within the field of dressage.

I have run and looked after top competition stables, including the land and equine management. I have also run a very successful riding school in the New Forest in England.

Over this time I have gained a great wealth of knowledge in a number of different areas and with different types of horses. This has enabled me to successfully set up and run my business, ‘All Your Equestrian Needs.’

I work with all different types of horse and rider combinations.

I use a clear, ‘black and white’ approach with horses. I find this is very effective and the horses understand me and want to work with me as a partnership.

I give riders achievable goals in the short term and homework to work on in the week, while always keeping their long term goals in mind. I understand my customers and will always work together to create a unique structured plan for everyone.

I am currently available to work with clients in the West Sussex area. With my broad expertise I would be happy to help you with “all your equestrian needs!”









I am really enjoying Katie working with us to improve my riding and my pony’s schooling. After a short period of time, I am feeling much more positive about our partnership. Other people at the yard have commented on how much I have improved and how nicely Katie rides my pony when she schools him. Highly recommended.

Katie is excellent. She is very knowledgeable (and patient!) and teaches in a manner that is clear and constructive.
I have more confidence and have learnt more with Katie in the last year than I have with any other instructor previously.

Katie also helped with my ‘horse shopping’ – giving very good, practical advice about what horse I should be looking for (not just the pretty ones). She spent time helping me look at adverts, came with me on viewings and had the experience to ask all the questions I would otherwise have forgotten. Ultimately Katie helped me find my horse of a lifetime.

Katie has helped me keep my 22 year old thoroughbred fit and healthy.

Katie is very patient and can always relate to my issues and come up with a solution! She got to know Hamish from the very first lesson and has always taken into account his age – never pushing him too hard and always giving me useful exercises to keep him going between lessons.

I really enjoy and look forward to having my lessons each week – it’s never a chore! Feeling the progress hamish and I have made together has been so rewarding.

Katie is a fantastic, knowledgable and friendly instructor and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

In the short time I have had Katie teach me I have gained so much already.
Seeing results each time I have my lesson with my very tricky youngster, Katie always has a solution to things and is always on the end of the phone if I need her with any problems I have been faced with.
I can not wait for next summer as by then I’m sure my naughty New Forest will have come on in leaps and bounds like he already is.

Katie is reliable, friendly and knows her stuff highly recommended!!!

Lois Lock

Katie is a fantastic instructor she is clear and concise and sympathetic to your needs. She has helped me enormously with re training my horse and we competed in our first dressage test last Sunday. I would totally recommend her.
