Sam and Louise run Austin Equine, is a small company providing training services to the equestrian population around Henley-on-Thames and other surrounding areas. They pride themselves in having an intelligent, thoughtful approach to any equine training issues and these methods are mirrored in our teaching approaches to riders and horse people.
Customers of ours for over 10 years, Sam and Lou often contact us for assistance if they have horses in for training with saddle related problems and use our ReactorPanel Saddles for their own horses. Sam and Lou are also fans of our traditional ranges of saddles and their customers have benefitted from all our brands of saddles depending on the horse or pony that we are fitting.
For all ages and abilities, between us we have taught all through the levels and for 5 Pony Clubs accross the country. During the spring and autumn we also run very popular cross country schooling clinics at venues across the south of england. Sam is Chief Instructor of the Woodland Hunt Branch of the Pony Club and has examined upto C+ Level. Both Sam and Lou teach adults too, with Sam specialising in jumping and flatwork with tricky and competition horses and Lou being brilliant with young horses and riders lacking confidence. We teach both at clients premises and at Oak Farm near Henley on Thames.
