Gayle

Starting her career as a very successful lawyer she balanced two very different lifestyles, in 2007 Gayle took the leap to follow her love for the sport, and set up GW Equine (riding, breeding and training), which took off instantly. She grew up riding horses and has over 35 years of experience working with horses, Gayle worked for reputable and respected names in the business, in several disciplines, producing horses from unbroken to 1.45m and to winning at national dressage championships, additionally she holds her BHSI and UKCC Level 3 coaching qualifications. On top of this she trained riders and supplied horses for the pentathletes at the London 2012 Olympics, World Championships, Europeans and was Wellington Colleges equestrian coach.

 

Having bred and produced her own horses to top levels, over the years she has worked very closely with the best vets and physio’s in the country. Gayle respects and understands the importance of correct muscle sculpture and knows what it takes to create and maintain peak performance in horses, as-well as a depth of understanding in rehabilitation. Gayle always knew how invaluable the water treadmill work was to helping her achieve greatness in her horses, inspiring her to share the opportunity with more riders and their horses.

 

Gayle has a vast knowledge span, a sharp and trained eye for gait analysis leading her to an idea of incorporating a unique video analysis system with the water treadmill, making it efficient, clear and easy to measure progress and analyse the movement of the horse. A very special and valuable feature of our treadmill service, coming highly recommended by vets, physios and professional riders.

 

Devoted to inspiring and helping riders and horses all levels and disciplines achieve their goals, she believes the water treadmill perfectly compliments her mission to open opportunities for everyone to succeed and enjoy their own journey with their horse.
