Tracey Johnston


Owner and proprietor for 25 years.

Having worked in education for the last 10 years I have gained experience as a lecturer in several different colleges. I have taught on both equine and animal programmes, previously focussing predominantly on 14-16 year olds. I have trained and assessed students on NVQ programmes as well as taught centre based qualifications in colleges. I now run and teach on the diploma courses that we offer here, as well as teaching private clients in the riding school. I currently hold the BHS SM qualification, my Certificate in Education and the D34 and D32 and D33 awards.

I also hold the A1 Assessor award and the PGCE qualification. I am also training for my BHS Stage 4 exam.
