Nina puts in 110% of her time and effort, coaching not only her regular students she coaches from her home base in Tynong North, but to everyone at Squads and various clinics/camps.

Nina is very knowledgeable and is very willing to share her experience and knowledge. Nina is extremely well respected and liked by everyone in the eventing and horse world and this is certainly reflected by how in demand she is as a coach.
