Meet The Team.

Meet the people who work at Ham House Stables.

Ham House Stables, Minette Rice Edwards

Minette Rice-Edwards is the proprietor of Ham House Stables.


Minette believes that riding effects your life, and life effects your riding. Her teaching has evolved from her wide equestrian experience. She has successfully competed in dressage, showing, show jumping, eventing, endurance, flat and jump racing, in the US and UK. She now teaches, judges and writes on equine matters. She has the Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) Advanced Teaching Diploma, has insights gained from teaching for over 60 years, and an approach that draws on the Alexander Technique. Unusually, for a teacher of her expertise, Minette works with ordinary horses and everyday riders, as well as teaching riders of international standard. Her aim for Ham House Stables is to create a place where people can come riding and connect with horses in a non-judgemental environment.

Glenn originally trained at Ham House Stables, progressing to work and train with top dressage rider Andrew Gould. He now manages a yard where he is also bringing on his own dressage horses. He has achieved BHS stage 3 Riding and Horse Care, and is the mastermind of the Ham House Stables “Kids' Club”. 

Frankie Wynne

Frankie Wynne, MSTAT, teaches Alexander Technique to the staff



Irish point-and-jump ponies made Frankie think she could ride. Horses said otherwise. Eventually, she learned that for them to go well, we must get out of their way, which we can do only with awareness of our bodies and habits. Knowing that Alexander Technique imparts this awareness, she trained to teach it.
