Whilst we spend time working with you on the flat or over fences, we also ensure that we have trainers at the stables on a weekly basis. We regularly hold clinics with top riders and are always introducing new riders and trainers to the yard, helping you to train towards your goals and become the best rider you can be. The clinics are open to liveries and non-liveries so keep a check on the website and our Facebook page for details.

Debbie Childs

Debbie ChildsDebbie spends a couple of days a week at Brookfield; such is the demand for her dressage lessons. She has trained two Brookfield liveries to compete at national dressage championships and if available will also attend events to help warm people up.

Debbie has her own yard of dressage horses and has won two national dressage titles and has trained horses to Prix St George level. She is currently on the BD Pyramid training scheme and training for UKCC.

“A session with Debbie is a true physical and mental work out. Not only do you feel it the next morning, but she sends you away with great practice exercises to keep you improving!’


Franck Bourny

BF Faces 2Franck has based himself in both France and England for the duration of his equestrian career; he now spends two weekends of the month teaching here at Brookfield.

He originally came to England in his late teens where he was based for many years with Mark Todd, it was here he gained the valuable experience he needed to make the transition from Junior Young Rider to international 4*.

Franck has been fortunate enough within his eventing career to partner some special horses; none more so than Mallard’s Treat. It was with this horse he won Blenheim and Punchestown as well as taking 2nd place at Burgie all within a year. His success continued with many other exceptional event horses with wins at Windsor and many other top ten placings at 2 and 3 star level.

This has allowed him to compete at some of the worlds more challenging events; including taking J U Bobby Sox clear around Badminton in 2002. It is this experience and knowledge he hopes to share with his clients.

He now chooses to divide himself between show jumping full time in France and passing on his wealth of knowledge to his pupils here in England. Teaching is a passion Franck has always taken pleasure from while enjoying teaching riders of all abilities and watching them progress to their final goal.

Frederick Bergendorff

Fred has represented Sweden and worked with top riders and trainers in show jumping and eventing. He was also on of the trainers on the television series ‘Only Fool on Horses!’ Fred has developed a modern, systematic approach which includes a clear understanding between pupil and training. His enthusiasm and technical clarity helps riders to move on and achieve their ambitions.

As one livery said; “Every word out of Yogi’s mouth is precious – after 45minutes I feel I have improved 110%!”
