Vanessa Bee

Vanessa Bee is the founder of the International Horse Agility Club. With a training facility in England and her own method known as Positive Horsemanship, she specializes in building relationships between the horse and the handler from the ground up.

Vanessa has been around horses most of her life, working in racing stables throughout her teens, then driving competitively into her early twenties when she was given an “unridable” racehorse as a wedding present. Very soon Vanessa realized that there had to be a better way than the “bigger stick, bigger bit method” of riding commonly offered, and in the late nineties Vanessa began to read, study, and work with some of the greatest horsemen of the age. She soon discovered that there are as many ways of teaching horsemanship as there are horses and handlers in the world.

As a qualified teacher with a degree in education, Vanessa has used her skills to develop a series of courses that teach people of all abilities and experience levels to achieve a positive relationship with their horse. By creating the International Horse Agility Club, she has provided a social and competitive outlet for those relationships to grow.
