  Natalie Allen - Dressage
  In 2003 Natalie represented GB in the Pony European
  Dressage team where they lifted the bonze team
  medal. In 2004 she won the Steele Trophy and in 2005
  she went on to represent GB at the Junior European
  Dressage Championships in Barzago, Italy as well as at several other Internationals. Natalie trained and was based with Emile Faurie from 2004 through to 2007.

In 2008 Natalie was selected for the Young Rider European dressage Team and won the Addington International Young rider Team Test. In 2009 she left the UK to train in Germany with Markus Gribbe and Mr Jurgen Koschel where she learned the German basic Dressage system of training which included ‘breaking’ young horses and riding and competing at Grand Prix Level. In 2010 Natalie came 10th in her first German Grand Prix qualifying for the special.

Having returned to the UK in 2011, Natalie now runs her own yard at Edgehill Stud, Warwickshire and trains both horses and riders from Novice to Grand Prix level including a number of event riders to 4 Star Level. Natalie is also currently working on training her own string of horses and has her sights set this year on competing international Grand Prix with her own horse Domino.

Natalie now trains regularly with Carl Hester and like Carl is extremely passionate about training and working with horse and rider to further develop their partnership in Dressage. Natalie is very keen to share her knowledge and love of dressage with all of our NRC members.
