Christina De’Ath

I am the daughter of Bryan and Tish and am a British Horse Society Accredited Professional Coach in Complete Horsemanship (Stage 3).

I am Yard Manager at Moat Farm Riding Centre and also look after my two daughters event horses.

I have been teaching since I was 16 years old and in my youth was a keen member of the local Pony Club Centre branch and local Riding club, where I competed in many teams such as showjumping at Hickstead and the Pony Club Show jumping team competition held at Burghley Horse Trials as well as competing at the National Riding Club Championships in Malvern.

My husband Adam and I have 3 children William, Freya and Faith and they have all grown up around the ponies, learning to ride and taking part in Pony Club activities.

Freya and Faith are active members of their local branch of The Pony Club.

Encouraging the riders and watching their confidence grow is so rewarding and I feel very lucky to coach riders in both riding and caring for ponies.

I have taught children and adults to ride for over 30 years, competed in show jumping and eventing as well as running a competition and livery yard here at Moat Farm with Christina.

Moat Farm Riding Centre was opened in 2006 with Christina and my husband Bryan.

I enjoy the admin side of running a Riding Centre as well as coaching the children in occasional riding sessions.
