Daniel Wilks

 Daniel  started riding when he was 10 years old and his passion for horses has been with him ever since.
"They are truly amazing animals and I love the relationship we get to share with them ...... I am most interested in having the horse ridden in a way that he is attentive to the riders aids and having the rider understand how to best translate their requirements of the horse in a way the horse can clearly interpret. " Daniel says.
