An animal lover since a young child, it wasn't until Omar Rabia was evacuated from Kuwait during the Gulf War that he found a connection with horses. Thanks to his grandparents, his journey with cobs started a couple of years later when they bought Babeabtie, a lovely bay cob. Under the tutelage of classic trainer Ginnie Wellings, Omar had the advantage of great teaching from the start. His passion for dressage and classical equitation was formed riding Ginnie's school-masters and bringing on his own youngsters using the methods he was shown. Now a qualified primary school teacher and Enlightened Equitation teacher and horse trainer, Omar combines these skills to great effect in teaching and training riders in classical equitation and dressage, especially on their cobs.
