Gemma Womersley Team YEC Head Coach
Alongside running Yorkshire Equestrian, Gemma spends her time coaching riders at various aspects of riding. From riders wishing to simply gain more understanding of their horses way of going to riders competing at high levels.
Having ridden from a young age, Gemma learnt numerous ways of improving and educating horses from starting their first steps to those going on to become serious competition horses.
Over the years, she has developed a knack of helping her riders to fully understand and visualise their riding, often inventing weird and wacky new ways to make sure her pupils are gaining the most from her sessions.
Available to offer coaching at the Centre and even to give support at competiton should you require. Regular clinics are ran with at the centre also, check our Events page and social pages for upcoming dates.
With a small number of talented well schooled horses, lessons can also be arranged on one of our own horses, whether you are new to horses, getting back in the saddle, or perhaps your own horse is out of action.

"YEC has been a big part of my life for nearly 6 years now and I cannot recommend this place more highly! Excellent facilities, top teaching and most importantly a very friendly place to be! I've gone from not being able to trot to breaking my own horse this winter and it's all thanks to Gemma! If you're looking for a brilliant place to keep your horse or just weekly lessons learning how to ride properly. I would recommend no where other than Yorkshire Equestrian Centre!" - Kirsty
I bought a first pony for my daughter and son to share that unfortunately turned out to not be a first pony and lost them their confidence. After sending the pony back I asked Gemma for help and advice to build their confidence back up. She is currently loaning us an amazing pony and giving amazing confidence giving lessons, that my children are hopefully are going to be back on track very soon. The yard is so friendly and everyone helps each other, I enjoy every minute I spend there. I would recommend the yard to anyone of any age, as it's a great place to be and the facilities are the best." - Charlotte
"I started riding at YEC beginning of this year and with the help and advice from Gemma my confidence has got much better! It's improved that much that now I own my own horse. I love spending time down at the yard as it's such a friendly atmosphere and everyone is so helpful. Great hacking and is gorgeous in the summer! If it wasn't for the lessons here and the advice I wouldn't have been able to get my own horse, so a big thankyou to Gemma and all the other girls xxx" - Haley and Poppie
"I started riding with the YEC Team 6 years agoand what can I say, it has been the best 6 years of riding ever. I have met some wonderful people and had some unforgettable memories. I bought a horse from Gemma 2 years ago.and without her help and encouragement I don't think I would be where I am today. Gemma's teaching is absolutley outstanding and I would recommend lessons at YEC to anybody. Gemma puts up with all the annoying questions that get asked and takes on everyone's opinions on board to make the YORKSHIRE EQUESTRIAN CENTRE a better place than it already is. So thanks to the YEC Girls and Gemma for making my time here magical!!." - Beth and Smartie
