Straight Forward Equitation - Maxine Kemp
Discover the Partnership you and your horse deserve...

My name is Maxine Kemp, I'm a classical riding trainer based in Suffolk and Essex.  My approach to training centers around building the essential partnership between horse and rider via an understanding of the biomechanics of both and how we might bring them together in balance and harmony.  In addition to traditional dressage training, I specialize in straightness training,  body awareness work for horse and rider, in-hand work and  rehabilitation.  
The past 25 years of my life have been spent  learning from many wonderful and knowledgeable trainers both on and off the horse, developing my own riding and training skills together with a unique approach and ability to impart this knowledge to others.  

I have recently returned from two successful years in Kenya where I trained riders from novice to advanced level and focused on the rehabilitation and retraining of  ex race horses for eventing and dressage. It is my continued aim to pass on the knowledge I have gained over the years to all open minded riders for good of the horse.

  • Heavier in one rein
  • Lazy, nervous or spooky
  • Bald patches from riders leg on one or both flanks
  • Difficulty with collection, extension or lateral work
  • Unspecified lameness or recurring back problems
  • Other seemingly unexplained issues
