Zoe Cain-Tyler has over 30 years experience owning and caring for horses. At the age of 16 she was involved in a serious motorbike accident which resulted in the loss of half of her right leg. This however did not stop her from carrying on with her passion for horses.

She has competed in all spheres through the years from in hand showing at National level to one day eventing, with International experience over many years in dressage as part of the Para Dressage Squad and more recently has represented GB in Para showjumping. As well as achieving a Batchelor of Science in Equine, she is the first amputee in the world to have passed the BHS AI and is also an A1 NVQ assessor and trainer. She is a popular local Dressage and show judge.

She has trained partnerships that have trained to National levels in dressage and showing and arranges clinics in various locations across Essex (and wider afield if funded) and welcomes nervous riders and problem horses.

Zoe arranges lectures and demonstrations throughout the year with either herself or carefully chosen experts/instructors, focusing on a range of disciplines including dressage, show jumping, agility, confidence building, pole work, grid work even gymkhana’s (for adults if needed!)

Private tutoring available for help with theory exams or assignments, or simply individual or group lessons at your own venue/yard on a freelance instructor basis.

Zoe specialises in helping with overcoming riders physical problems, having had a personal experience of adaptions and is fantastic at coming up with simple ideas to help and reduce any limitations in the saddle.  For Zoe, its about you enjoying riding and getting the most out of your partnership, making it fun, enjoyable  and positive!

Most recently Zoe has been awarded the “Disability Entrepreneur Award” for the Essex Big Business Boost Competition 2016, which recognises her business skills and how she wants to develop Culvercroft Equestrian for the future. More information about the prestigious award can be found here
and you can look forward to the development of this website plus an online community including offering online lessons and tutorials to improve Culvercroft members knowledge base. What is more, she wants to provide clinic recordings to those who could not attend as well as regular blogs/vlogs that encompass the experiences and daily routines. – Watch this space!!
