About Us

catherine1Whitesands is a small livery and classical training yard owned and run by Catherine Marshall, rider, trainer and the first licensed instructor of Philippe Karl’s School of Légèreté in the UK as of September 2014.

Catherine has a competitive dressage background, and in 2003 began importing and breaking in horses from Holland. Working with young horses remains a particular passion, but rather than focusing on competition Catherine is now fully dedicated to teaching Philippe Karl’s extraordinary method. Why? Because it works. And the horses love it. And what’s more it is possible to understand why it works. And you never have a bad day, because you know if something isn’t right what you have to improve to make it better. And did I mention that anybody can do it? On any horse. If you want to train your horses with kindness, empathy and efficacy this is the place for you.
