As youth rep for the region, I am proud to support our younger riders of all levels.

Having been brought up around horses and competed for many years in eventing it is good to give something back to the equestrian sport.

Alison Calvert, Coaching representative

Alison Calvert

Coaching representative

Alison has been involved in British Dressage as a competitor for 23 years and ridden up to Inter 1. I’ve been coaching from home in Oswaldtwistle and freelance for 12 years, I love learning the intricacies of the biomechanics of the horse, I’m a “why” person so I like to learn all the details, that’s why dressage is so fascinating.  I had a career in Greater Manchester Police prior to becoming a coach and something not many people know about me is whilst on maternity leave I qualified as landscape gardener.  I have 2 children, Jonathan and Charlotte who also compete.
