Owned by Jayne since he was 4yo. Sipko is a dressage horse, who has donea little eventing. Unfortunately Jayne (a former pupil of Karin) has some spinal injuries and has been unable to ride him for sometime, so Sipko has been with a number of professional/semi-professional riders.

He came to Overdale, on loan to Karin, in July 2014. British Dressage Novice points. Jayne now visits and rides him regularly.

Sipko is a very lovable, self-assured, extravagant, big moving horse.

He is mainly at Overdale to teach Karin how to ride better, although may be available for lessons or on courses for more advanced riders.

“Karin, thank you so much for teaching me how to ride. Having spent 30 years and thousands of pounds on lessons, being confused and never feeling in control, i.e. always anxious and not really enjoying riding.

I found you and after only a handful of lessons, where you’ve explained everything so clearly and identified several reasons why I haven’t been in control.

Today’s lesson was great and I feel for the first time in my life that I’m riding, more in control and loving it… if only I’d found you all those years ago.

Now back to my breathing and my riding hat!”Louise
