Bo Hardwick

Bo is Jon's younger sister, she gained her BHS AI and Stage IV riding whilst on her gap year before going to university to study a BSc (Hons) in Economics and an Ma (Hons) in Industrial Economics.  

 

Bo has many years teaching under her belt but since returning to the UK she has been influenced by the work of renowned coach and author, Mary Wanless.​  She is currently in training with Mary but is not yet an accredited teacher of her method.  Riding successfully at 2* level in Eventing qualified Bo to undertake her UKCC level 2 Eventing Specific coaching qualification which she passed in September 2017 making her a British Eventing Accredited Coach. Bo's coaching is based on correct rider biomechanics in order to create a functional interface between the horse and his rider.  

 

Bo has three homebred horses, Speshal, Tiger Lilly and Popcorn.  Having ridden all her life she especially enjoys bringing on young and inexperienced horses.   She started competing at the age of four and although her first love is eventing she also enjoys endurance riding having produced horses to advanced level in this discipline.  2016 finally saw the hard work paying off with both Popcorn and Tiger Lilly reaching 2* level in their respective disciplines.

 

Bo is also Joint Organiser of British Eventing's Poplar Park Horse Trials  held in March and Organiser of the EGB Endurance Ride held every May.  Bo is available for lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday mornings when she is not buried under a mountain of paperwork or out competing!
