Who is the Everyday Equestrian?
My name is Alison Buttery and my day job is as an Equine Lecturer. My role as HE Programme Leader in Equine Studies includes regular professional development, and I work hard to keep my subject knowledge up to date. I am a qualified teacher (PGCE) but also a qualified riding instructor (BHSAI) and hold the Intermediate Stable Manager's certificate too. My academic qualifications include BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science and MSc Equine Science.
I have worked as a teacher/lecturer for 8 years now, and been a freelance instructor for approx. 15 years. Previously I have worked in the equestrian industry in a practical setting on yards, but also in business. My CV includes time as a National Account Manager for equestrian produces, and as a Production Manager for a well-known British saddle manufacturer.
What does the everyday equestrian offer?
Freelance Riding Coach
I am a BHS Accredited Professional Coach. I hold BHSAI & Intermediate Stable Manager qualifications, and have taught for many years.
I cover Derbyshire & Staffordshire areas and travel to teach clients on their own horses at their premises.
I also offer lessons, plus flatwork and jumping clinics at two venues; Derby College Equestrian Centre DE7 6DN and Oak Lees Lodge, Dalbury Lees, Derbyshire DE6 5BG. Both venues offer great facilities & parking, so offer opportunities to develop both horse & rider in a different environment.
I absolutely love writing about the equestrian industry, it's just so exciting! I have active Facebook, Twitter & Instagram accounts, and I thoroughly enjoy keeping up-to-date with what's going on!
