Welcome to Groen Equestrian, founded and run by Esther Groen.

Groen Equestrian provides a number of services to make your horse a happy athlete by improving your skills and knowledge as a rider and manager. Whether your horse is a happy hacker, (un)affiliated competition horse or an endurance horse, all horses need a rider that will ride without restrictions or physical limitations.

Have a look what Groen Equestrian can do for you:

Esther Groen offers a broad range of services from her base in Worcestershire; she’s a BHS trained instructor, a biomechanics coach with a unique “re-active” Simulator, plus brings specialist knowledge as a saddle fitter and of course, ultimately, as an experienced top level endurance rider and trainer. Groen Equestrian is also home to her unique endurance and performance horse stud.
