Dressage Instruction with Rebecca Hughes

Wednesday 11 June and Saturday 21 June 2014 (times will be allowed once booking has been made)

Classic Dressage International, Whelpley Hill, Chesham, Bucks HP5 3RL

Having started riding at 10 years old at her local riding school in Belgium, Rebecca acquired her first pony aged 13 upon moving back to England whereupon she enjoyed the usual teenage activities of Pony Club, hunting and local shows. With regular weekly lessons Rebecca had an unexpected breakthrough when she won the Talent Spotting Finals in 1991. The following year she joined Sarah Whitmore for a year as a working pupil and had many successes as a Young Rider including being selected to represent Great Britain in Canada in 1994.


In 1998 Rebecca joined forces with Julia Hornig to set up Classic Dressage and has to date chosen, started and produced young horses every year through to the National Championships. In 2001 she won the 5 year old National Championship on her own Classic Collection. Rebecca also found and started the hugely successful Sandman on whom her husband Gareth won both the Prix St George and Intermediaire 1 National Championships as well as winning both Hartpury and Hickstead internationals in 2007. Rebecca has enjoyed the opportunities to represent Great Britain and compete in Sydney in 2005 and whilst 4 months pregnant with her daughter Ruby in Japan in 2007! In 2008 Rebecca won the Prix St George Freestyle National Championship on Felicity Scott's Shining Light and went on to be 2nd at Hartpury International having just missed top spot on collective marks! She also went on to be placed at Hickstead International and at the National Championships at Intermediaire 1 that year.

Rebecca is firmly establishing herself as a very effective trainer of all levels including Young Riders and Eventers. Rebecca is a British Dressage listed judge and is renowned for having an excellent eye for finding and starting talented horses.
