| Anita Butler
Anita fell in love with dressage when she had the opportunity to have the ride and compete on a school master. She then decided to breed her own dressage horse who is now 5 years old and achieved a score of over 70% at his first competition! Her goal is to train him to the highest level she is able to.
Anita has previously worked for Adam Kemp, Matt frost and Justine Sole at AMDressage, where she learnt the most about dressage and the high standards required on a professional dressage yard.
In her spare time she is usually found with her horse or walking her dog, Zebedee or spending time with family and friends. She is passionate about dressage and absolutely loves caring for and training horses.
