The Little Wishford Team



Lisa Hayes - Manager & BHS Stage 3 instructor & Stage 4 Senior Management - I have over 20 years experience with horses and ponies, both working with them and for pleasure!  I started off with a huge love of jumping in my teenage years, competing in BSJA, never having a ready made pony spurred me on to produce the best out of what I had, achieving some excellent results in the process.  I then went to train as a BHS instructor .  

After qualifying I taught regularly at a riding school and then went on to teach freelance, currently I teach Pony Club, show jumping as well as teaching showing combinations to children ranging from 4 to 16 years old, preparing the pony and rider combinations for shows.

Here at Little Wishford I take the overrall responsibility for riding school management. I am the safeguarding officer, fully DBS checked and hold a full and current BHS first aid qualification.
