Georgia Christoffelsz

Georgia is our chief instructor and has over 20 years experience coaching young and old riders. She has enjoyed success over the years in dressage, showing, eventing and showjumping. She herself is a multiple National and Royal Show Champion on horses she produced from scratch.

Georgia has a great passion for teaching children all about horses, and not just the riding.  Horse riding is a sport that offers so much, children learn teamwork, hard work, empathy, communication, responsibility and so much more.

Georgia has an excellent way of communicating with both young and old riders, and especially enjoys teaching adults returning to riding as well.  She has a special interest in rider biomechanics, and helping riders overcome their fears and nerves.  Georgia is enthusiastic, but patient and calm, focusing always on the correct basics and the horses welfare first and foremost.

Georgia also enjoys breeding, from riding ponies to warmbloods.  Horses bred under the Redlands Prefix have enjoyed many royal show championships.

Georgia is a qualified EA Instructor.
