Louise's love of horses began with her first ride at the age of five. After completing a BSc in Architecture from UCL (University College London) Louise wanted to pursue her dream of becoming a professional rider and trainer and travelled to Warendorf, Germany to work for triple-Olympic gold medallist, Monica Theodorescu. After 18 months Louise returned home to work freelance. She was was Monica's travelling groom for four years, attending the biggest shows in the world. After Monica's retirement in 2012, Louise returned full-time to the UK and set up Thoroughbred Dressage.
Thoroughbred Dressage is is growing and developing, as we strive to produce the best horses we can and help educate those with ex- racehorses, and dressage horses. Thoroughbred Dressage has the support of a dedicated professional team who help keep the horses in the best shape possible.
