I started training with Nikki about 18 months ago. I can honestly say that I drive away from every session with increased confidence and a real sense of progression.  Nikki has an incredible technical understanding of the sport which she applies very effectively and clearly in her teaching, with emphasis not only on what to do, but also getting you to think about why and how it works.  That is essential to being able to take the teaching back home and apply it in schooling - her teaching is genuinely “portable”. She is unfailingly patient, good humoured and fun. Apart from her technical knowledge, what I find really sets her apart from other trainers is her collaborative approach. You feel that you are a partnership in getting the best out of your horse. Nikki not only uses her own observation, but also listens carefully to what you tell her and works with you on the issues you raise, as well as helping you to think for yourself by getting you to assess your performance and that of the horse through her questions and feedback. Between training sessions she also provides short, constructive feedback by text on videos of rounds in competition and we often use these to identify what to tackle at our next session. On top of all this I can ask her advice on any issue of management and care of a competition horse and I get an answer I can rely on and trust.  In short, Nikki is the complete trainer and I’d recommend her to anyone who is serious about improving performance.
