The thing I have really loved about Tristan is that he is such a fantastic role model to our young people. He is enthusiastic and shows the true values of sportsmanship.He has always been incredibly encouraging and supportive of the kids and their riding.Tristan maintains great relationships with not only the young riders but the parents also. I wish him all the best with his coaching in the future.”

Academy Mum

“Right from the first meeting at Summerhill Tristan has been welcoming, inclusive and approachable. My daughter (17) became involved in the club and subsequently the Development Squad. Tristan has trained her now for approx. 2 years. He has been supportive, informative, compassionate, patient and knowledgeable as well as fun. He instils the idea that the more you put in the more you can get out. Tristan takes a holistic approach to develop well rounded and stable athletes with as much support in different areas as they require.  He aims to develop good habits and choices to enable the kids to go as far as they want and to stay in the sport and have fun for many years to come.”
