About Larissa

Larissa Cox:

My name is Larissa Cox and I am a riding instructor of Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, and Recreational Riding disciplines, from Vancouver, BC, Canada.

My philosophy is to be aware of the mental, physical, and emotional needs of both the rider and the horse. I believe this starts with safety, and helping a rider develop short and long term goals based on their training needs and competition desires. I incorporate Centered Riding groundwork and bodywork in lessons to help develop a greater self awareness and to better facilitate the harmony between horse and rider.

I hold NCCP Level 3 certification, ARIA Level 2 certification in both Dressage and Recreational Riding, CHA Level 1 certification in both Western and English disciplines, and qualification from Centered Riding as a Level 1 instructor.  I have recently completed my Master of Science Degree in Applied Equine Science degree at Royal Agricultural College, England.

I am available for private lessons and riding/theory workshops. Please fill in your information on the Contact Form below, if you are interested in hosting a workshop.

Hi Gwenyth,

I don’t currently have my own stable, but I do freelance instruction throughout the Lower Mainland, British Columbia and in the U.K. while I’m there. I also do video coaching if that’s of interest to you.
