Hi, I’m Lisa and own the Centre with my husband Alistair. I currently own an advanced dressage mare called Diminuelle (aka Minnie), as well as numerous riding school ponies/horses!
I hold my UKCC coaching qualifications and when I’m not caring for my little boy’s, Alex & Matt, I can be found teaching private horse owners, Dressage Academy, Saturday Club & Pony club sessions.

I am responsible for overseeing & developing the junior coaching programmes which I get great enjoyment from and I am also the allocated child welfare & liaison officer.
You can read my profile under the dressage training section.


Hi, I’m Jessie and I first started at Barguse as an apprentice.

Having studied at Duchy College for two years for my City & Guild Level 2 in Equine care, I am now working full time at Barguse. I have been riding since I was 6 and have my own horse called Socks who I enjoy competing on when time allows!

I hold my Riding & Road safety certificate and am currently working towards my UKCC level 1 coaching exam.

I work both on the yard and also help assist the senior coaches with group sessions, Saturday Club and Pony Pals!


I’m Vicky and I have been riding and helping out here at Barguse since 2012, I had to take a break from riding to look after my disabled husband in 2007 but thanks to Lisa and everybody at Barguse I rediscovered my love of horses.

I’m in charge of our Pony Club, helping our members to earn their achievement badges, planning for tests and exams, and making sure our annual camps run smoothly.

I was the Sportivate participant of year for 2014, completing a Sportivate course with Barguse, I am hoping to gain my UKCC level 2 qualification soon.

I have a particular interest in working with clients with additional needs and I am very excited that Barguse is an RDA accessibility mark centre.

My background is in special needs care, and I have previous experience working with clients with both physical and learning disabilities.

I sign Makaton, and I am trying to add to my BSL knowledege as I go.

Outside of riding I am obsessed with all things Disney, and my favourite place to be (apart from Barguse of course) is Walt Disney World in Florida.


In addition to the above staff, we have other BHS and UKCC qualified instructors that help deliver sessions throughout the week so our customers can take advantage of a varied lesson, as well as visiting coaches who run a variety of clinics.
