Heike is the most successful international dressage rider based in Ireland. She competed in many disciplines, including show jumping and showing, before specialising in Dressage in her teens.

In 1994 she moved to Germany to be trained by Dr. Reiner Klimke, and competed at many International shows worldwide in the following years.


She represented Ireland in Atlanta, Sydney and Athens Olympic Games, World Championships and European Championships.  She has been Irish National Champion 11 times and has many wins and placings at international level.


Heike has trained horses from novice level up to Grand Prix, and teaches pupils not only from the dressage scene, but many show jumpers and event riders of all ages.
