Gillian Clissold, Owner/Rider of 2003 USEA Mare of the Year "Sportscar": “I have known Yvonne Lucas for over seven years. In 2004 and 2005 she coached me in dressage on my Advanced level eventing mare Sportscar. I have also watched her teach students with horses very different from my own.

Her teaching style is patient, her tone encouraging and her level of technical knowledge high. She can adapt her teaching to a wide variety of temperaments and abilities. I have also seen Yvonne bring a number of horses up through the eventing levels, and admire her tact and ability to adjust her training program to suit each horse.”
