Pepperwood Park is situated in the picturesque village of King’s Somborne near Winchester in Hampshire. It is the home of International Dressage rider and trainer Karen Shepherd and her husband Andy. The activities at Pepperwood Park are focused on dressage & eventing training. We also hire out our amazing facilities which can now be booked on-line.
The Pepperwood team are passionate about constantly improving the knowledge of all those that care for and train the modern competition horse of today. This is why we will run Lecture Demos that involve masters from around the world who can pass on their knowledge to help all of us help our horses. Every horse living here always has a smile on its face because our total focus is on building a happy, relaxed horse friendly environment.
See you soon!
``Karen’s teaching is clear, insightful, effective, kind and encouraging. Having struggled with the legacy of years of previous poor/incorrect instruction Karen has helped me unravel all the wrongs and correct them. Helping me plug the holes in my knowledge, break bad habits, and improve my overall level of ridden skill you wouldn’t recognize me now, compared to the rider I was a year ago!``
``You really feel part of the Pepperwood family when attending lessons and residential boot camps. It’s a lovely inclusive and encouraging environment to ride in.``
``Thanks to Karen’s teaching we just scored an all-time personal best of 22.5 (77.5%) in our latest ODE, placing us 1st after the dressage phase! Karen has reignited our enthusiasm, confidence, and drive to compete at dressage so alongside eventing we will be aiming for Novice/Elementary dressage in the not so distant future!”
