Eilidh is one of the top Scottish Event Riders.

Eilidh has won two individual gold medals at Student Nations Cups (France and Holland) and also Team Gold at University World Finals in Ireland. She is an excellent UKCC Level 2 coach and very quickly develops a rapport with her students.
Sally has worked with horses since leaving school at 16 to work on a dressage yard in Portugal for a year. She holds her BHS Stage 1, 2, 3, 4, PTT, ITT and Stable Managers qualifications and is a first aider. Sally mainly teaches on our Eventing Camps, but she trains many of our regulars on a private basis at Aberdeen Riding Club, which she runs. Sally has a great eye for detail and is happy teaching all levels both on the flat and over jumps - she is the regular trainer for all of the Lawson children.
In addition to our regular coaches, we are always striving to bring the most talented and exciting trainers in all equestrian disciplines to the area - most recently Sir Mark Todd who was a huge success, training 50 people over two days in Aberdeen, in addition to performing at two demo evenings.
