  • Opportunity for training under the outstanding eye of Isobel Wessels
  • Opportunity to join our beautiful yard - Nupdown Equestrian
  • Kind quiet rider, enjoys quirky horses and ponies
  • Opportunity for training under the outstanding eye of Isobel Wessels

I am an up and coming dressage rider looking for opportunities to further my dressage career. I am a quiet and kind rider who has schooled many horses and ponies of almost every breed, size, shape, type and temperament! I am a massive fan of mares and am experienced with quirky horses. I am also very experienced with ponies and really enjoy working with them. Please read our specs

We are a small, quiet, family run yard with outstanding facilities. We don't have any grooms, staff or other riders and we absolutely adore all of the horses in our care so each horse is known inside and out and is treated as an individual. Here the horses are always put first and with us living on site our horses receive the very best care. We are very experienced, having worked on a variety of different yards including, competition yards, studs, selling yards, hunt yards and have groomed for olympic riders. And have many qualifications in horse care, coaching and riding, including a degree in equine science. 

Alongside my already successful competition record, I was also selected for the Pony Club final squad (2 dressage riders in GB) for the 2014 Rider Development Pathway, have competed at the Pony Club Nationals in dressage and eventing, was a pony club national ambassador and have showjumped competitively to 1.20m alongside team chasing and hunting for fun, but dressage is my passion.

I have a few talented horses of my own which are also available for part ownership. And we also offer schooling and sales livery.

Please get in contact if you have anything you think may be suitable, a horse looking to step down from top level competition, a potential FEI pony wanting competition experience, a showjumper looking for a change in career or a talented youngster that you'd like to watch develop under a sympathetic rider. Your horse or pony doesn't need to be a Valegro look-a-like, with correct schooling we can bring out best in your horse whatever the breed. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to find out more about our horses. We encourage owners to be as hands-on or as hands-off as you'd like.

Please check us out on facebook, 'Chloe Victoria Dawes' or on instagram 'Dawes Dressage'. References available, also please check out our reviews on facebook at 'Nupdown Equestrian'.

No cobs, coloured or TBs (sorry, just not my taste).

Healthy budget for the right partner, no more than 1.5 hours from oxford. Doesn’t have to have aspirations of Badminton, just a good sort who loves going out and about without having a melt down or aerobatics.

In return, the living will be warm, comfy and mostly green, travel will be in the luxury of his/her own well-appointed 3.5T lorry and above all, he or she will be loved passionately.

Looking for a well-schooled , ideally middle-aged, mare or gelding to join our family. Will be used for hacking so essential to be good with traffic.

But my daughter wants to continue to compete so competition experience is essential - proven BE is not necessary but would be a bonus .

  • Do you have an eventer or dressage horse that you no longer want to compete at such a high level?
  • ... or that you want to have quieter life?
  • 16.1hh+

I am an experienced rider who completes at Novice BD and is looking for a horse, preferably a gelding, to do the same and go up to Elementary. A quiet, sympathetic and kind rider who has regular training and would look to complete around once a month.

If your horse loves a bit of eventing, we could do BE80/90 too, although this is not a pre-requisite.

I can offer a loving 5* experienced home, with the horse being kept at home with an arena and fantastic local hacking, plus attending training sessions. Excellent references can be provided from BD and BE accredited coaches.

The horse must be good at travelling on it's own in a big trailer, hack out (alone and in company) in country traffic and be nice to do.

Please contact me if you have a horse you are wanting to place in a lovely home, who will of course receive regular farrier, dentist, physio etc. A loan would be preferred (with full loan agreement), although have a small budget if you'd prefer to sell and home is more important than price. The reason I'm looking at loan/small budget is due to the large financial outlay I've had with current horse.

No rearers, buckers or bolters please!
